Each month’s entries are being judged by Anita Thomas, Sales Manager Ireland, Emirates; Michael Flood, Editor, Irish Travel Trade News; and Neil Steedman, ITTN’s News & Features Editor. Each of the five monthly winners receives a trophy and a voucher for €200.

In addition, a sixth finalist will be chosen from all the entries submitted over the five months by votes submitted by ITTN’s readers. This winner will also receive a trophy and a €200 voucher and all readers who nominated the winner will be entered into a draw to win a digital travel camera.

A winner will be selected from the six finalists by a separate panel of judges comprising Enda Corneille, Country Manager Ireland, Emirates; professional photographer Paul Sherwood; and Michael Flood, ITTN Editor. The overall winner will be presented with tickets for two from Dublin to any destination on Emirates’ extensive worldwide network.

All six finalists of the 2017 ITTN+EMIRATES Travel Photographer of the Year competition will also be guests of Emirates at the 26th Irish Travel Trade Awards, to be held at the Clayton Hotel Burlington Road, Dublin 4, on Friday 24th November 2017, when the overall winner will be announced.
