Terms

Anyone can enter. Travellerspoint staff are not allowed to win.

For every photo you enter, you must:

  • have a high resolution version (4 megapixels or higher)
  • own the copyright
  • have been taken this year

You are allowed to enter photos you uploaded to Travellerspoint before, even if they haven't been featured. The moderators will take another look at any photo tagged for the competition.

By entering your photo, you're also giving Travellerspoint a non-transferable, non-revocable right to use it to promote Travellerspoint. You will still own the copyright, and full credit will be given to you for the photo.

Nomination

You can nominate up to three photos. Only those featured by our photo moderators will be selected. If you'd like to nominate a photo that you uploaded to Travellerspoint previously, but that wasn't featured, you can still nominate it. The moderators will take another look at any photo tagged for the competition. Be sure to select a location for your photo, as this is necessary for it to be featured.

If you're nominating a new photo:

  • Go to your photo upload page and upload your photos as per usual.
  • Under Tags, add these tags: bestof2012 and comp34.
  • If you have tagged your photo correctly, it will appear on this page.

If you want to nominate a photo that you have already uploaded to Travellerspoint:

  • Go to your private photo gallery.
  • Tick the "select" box under the photos you want to nominate. Once you've selected all the photos you'd like to nominate, click "Edit Selected" at the bottom of the page.
  • Under Tags, add these tags: bestof2012 and comp34.
  • If you have tagged your photo correctly, it will appear on this page.

Featured nominated photos will appear on this page.
