The image(s) you submit to Best Travel Photography may not be altered within a photo editing software program; although cropping is allowed.

That means no cloning anything out of the original image, nor adding anything in; and no HDR enhancements.

We’re looking for travel photographers who know what makes a great shot, not talented photo editors who’ve learned how to digitally manipulate images that didn’t work once the shutter was released.

Our Best Travel Photography contest is sponsored by the Top Travel Pics group.

Voting will be open to the general public but there may be a special prize for an ‘Editor’s Choice’ winner. Details to be announced in the Top Travel Pics discussions.

To win the Editor’s Choice, your pictures should make the viewer want to travel there, or at least convey an emotion about a place you visited.

Why did you choose to go where you did? What made you press the shutter when you did? Is it really your best shot? Could you have done better?

Submissions End and Voting Begins: Tuesday, March 24th, 2015 – 8:05 AM
Voting Ends and Prizes Awarded: Tuesday, March 31st, 2015 – 8:05 AM
