This year Irish Travel Trade News is once again partnering with Emirates for our Travel Photographer of the Year competition – with an overall prize of tickets for two from Dublin to any destination on the Emirates worldwide network.
The competition is running for five months, from 1st June to 31st October 2018, and photos taken by Irish travel agency or tour operator staff, North or South, since 1st November 2017 are eligible.
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 will receive a trophy and a voucher for €200.
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.
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, which currently includes 144 destinations: 22 in Africa, 51 in Asia Pacific, 40 in Europe, 17 in the Americas, and 14 in the Middle East.
All six finalists of the 2018 ITTN+EMIRATES Travel Photographer of the Year will also be guests of Emirates at the 27th Irish Travel Trade Awards, when the overall winner will be announced.
