Irish Travel Trade News is delighted to announce that in 2017 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 2017 and photos taken by Irish travel agency or tour operator staff, on the island of Ireland, since 1st November 2016 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 submitted over the five months by votes from ITTN readers.
This winner will also receive a voucher for €200 and a trophy.
No correspondence will be entered into in connection with this competition.
An overall winner will then be selected by a separate panel of judges comprising Enda Corneille, Country Manager Emirates; professional photographer Paul Sherwood; and Michael Flood, ITTN Editor, 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 2017 ITTN+EMIRATES Travel Photographer of the Year competition will also be guests of Emirates at the 26th Irish Travel Trade Awards, which will be held at the Clayton Hotel– Burlington Road on Friday 24th November 2017, when the overall winner will be announced.
