Photography and travel-related workshops will take place during Travel Photographer of the Year 2010 exhibition period at the Society this summer.
Travel Photographer of the Year (TPOTY) has announced a new five-year partnership with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) that will see the Society host major annual exhibitions of the awards, supported by an ongoing programme of workshops and events, starting this summer.
The first free exhibition will run from May 6th to June 10th 2011 at the Society’s modern glass-fronted Pavilion in Kensington, London, featuring winning shots from the TPOTY 2010. A programme of photography and travel-related workshops and talks will also take place during the exhibition period (details to follow online).
TPOTY has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 2003 by founders Chris and Karen Coe. Back in 2007, Sojournposse saw TPOTY for the first time and was impressed to learn that “the youngest entrant to date was aged just five, the oldest 88.”
It is a refreshing alternative to heavy-themed photography awards, emphasising more on the love of photography itself. And the images make you feel like travelling again.
