Travel Photographer of the Year 2020

For the 2020 awards 25,000 photographs from 147 countries were submitted. The winning Travel Photographer of the Year photos range from beautiful landscapes to harrowing reportage of life in Syria, as well as intimate wildlife portraits.

TPOTY founder Chris Coe, said, “These winners are spectacular in their beauty, range, drama, elegance and, in some cases, poignancy. In tough times they will bring a warmth and joy to many and confirm that there is skill, insight, vision and art in travel photography.”

Some entrants sent images taken close to home during lockdown, others from places they became stranded as temporary residents.

Professional and amateur photographers from 147 countries submitted some 25,000 images.
