2016 ITTN+EMIRATES Travel Photographer of the Year

Irish Travel Trade News is delighted to announce that in 2016 we are again partnering with Emirates for our Travel Photographer of the Year competition this summer – and for an extended period of five months.

The competition will run from 1st June to 31st October 2016 and photos taken by Irish travel agency or tour operator staff since 1st November 2015 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.

In addition, a wild card finalist will be chosen from all the entries submitted over the five months by a separate panel of judges comprising Enda Corneille, Country Manager Ireland, Emirates; professional photographer Paul Sherwood; and Michael Flood, ITTN Editor. The wild card winner will also receive a €200 voucher.

An overall winner will then be selected from the six finalists and will be presented with tickets for two from Dublin to any destination on Emirates’ extensive worldwide network.

All the six winners in the 2016 ITTN+EMIRATES Travel Photographer of the Year competition will also be guests of Emirates at the 25th Irish Travel Trade Awards, which will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Dublin – Burlington Road on Friday 25th November 2016, when the overall winner will be announced.
