Hello Emirates for 2016 Photo Competition

Irish Travel Trade News is delighted to announce that in 2016 we will again be partnering with Emirates for the ITTN+EMIRATES Travel Photographer of the Year competition.

Full details will be published later in the year, but the prize for the overall winner next summer will again be return tickets for two from Dublin to any destination on the Emirates worldwide network – which offers over 140 destinations in more than 80 countries from which to choose!

The winner of the inaugural 2015 ITTN+EMIRATES Travel Photographer of the Year competition was Brendan Barry, Discover Travel, with his winning photograph, ‘Coffee Break Time’, taken in January 2015 on Inle Lake, Myanmar, with a Canon 350D camera.

Brendan told ITTN: “It was a great pleasure to win the ITTN+EMIRATES Travel Photographer of the Year award. I really never thought I would take a photograph that would ever even be considered for such an honour. My photographs of Myanmar were helped greatly by the most amazing scenery and people I have ever encountered. It truly is a must-see country for anyone who wants to enjoy a unique experience.”
