Irish Travel Trade News is delighted to announce that in 2018 we are again partnering with Emirates for our Travel Photographer of the Year competition this summer.
The competition will run from 1st June to 31st October 2018 and photos taken by Irish travel agency or tour operator staff, on the island of Ireland, since 1st November 2017 will be eligible.
Each month’s entries will be judged by Anita Thomas, Sales Manager Ireland, Emirates, the competition’s sponsors; Michael Flood, Editor, Irish Travel Trade News; and by Neil Steedman, ITTN’s News & Features Editor. Each of the five monthly winners will receive a voucher for €200 and a trophy.
In addition, a sixth finalist will be chosen from all the entries short-listed by those judges over the five months by a separate judging panel comprising Enda Corneille, Country Manager Ireland, Emirates; professional photographer Paul Sherwood; and Michael Flood, ITTN Editor. This winner will also receive a trophy and a €200 voucher.
No correspondence will be entered into in connection with this competition.
The second panel of judges will also select an overall winner from the six finalists. The winner will be presented with tickets for two from Dublin to any destination on Emirates’ extensive worldwide network.
All the six winners in the 2018 ITTN+EMIRATES Travel Photographer of the Year competition will also be guests of Emirates at the 27th Irish Travel Trade Awards, which will be held at the Clayton Hotel Burlington Road, Dublin 4, on Friday 23rd November 2018 when the overall winner will be announced.
