The winners of the tenth annual Wanderlust Travel Photo of the Year Competition have been announced ? and this year it?s the amateurs, not the professionals, who are well and truly in the limelight.
While four amateur photographers have each won a photographic commission to Antarctica, the top prize for a professional photographer has been left unclaimed.
Category winners include a heating engineer from Bournemouth, a database developer from Southampton, a print buyer from Bath and a museum research fellow from Gloucestershire. In addition to winning a photographic commission to Antarctica, all winners and shortlisted entrants will showcase their work in Wanderlust, The Independent newspaper and at Destinations 2007, the UK?s top holiday and travel show.
Wanderlust?s picture editor, Amy Bellew, says ?In today?s world we are often visually overloaded, and so it is refreshing in this competition to see a wealth of images conveying individual perspectives with such originality.?
Full competition results and the winning photos can be found in the March issue of Wanderlust, and online at www.wanderlust.co.uk
