Entries are now open for the 2006 Young Travel Photographer of the Year competition (TPOTY). This free-to-enter international challenge for young photographers is now in its fourth year, and once again features superb prizes.

Open to photographers aged 16 and under, Young TPOTY invites youngsters to submit four images on the theme ‘Wish You Were Here’. The entrant whose work most impresses the panel of judges will win a bundle of prizes to help them take their photography to the next level:

• An HP Photosmart 8450 printer and HPScanjet 4890 photo scanner

• Wacom Graphire 4 Classic pen tablet

• Adobe Creative Suite Premium software

• A beautiful leather portfolio book from Plastic Sandwich so that they can display their photography in a highly professional way

In addition, the young winner will follow in the footsteps of previous winners, Chris Charnock, Anna Scott and Edward Mole, and see their work published in the Travel Photographer of the Year ‘Journey’ series of books and displayed at TPOTY exhibitions at Olympia, the NEC and the London Eye; all a great boost for a young photographer. The stunning winning images from previous Young TPOTY competitions can be seen in the Winners’ Galleries at

The Young Travel Photographer of the Year competition is the junior category of TPOTY, the international competition open to amateur and professional photographers aged 17 and above. This also features an incredible prize package, including some fantastic foreign travel and the latest professional-level photographic equipment, so youngsters should encourage their parents and older siblings or friends to grab their cameras too! Full details can be found at
