TRAVELERS

Deadline: 29 February 2020

“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.” – Susan Sontag

There’s a world out there to explore. Open your eyes to its landscapes, people, cultures – on your doorstep or 10,000 km away. Expand our horizons with view from the four corners of the globe!

We’ve pointed the compass, but feel free to go in any direction you want: Landscape, travel, portraiture, reportage, street, aerial… All genres welcome. Your journeys, your discoveries!

Judge: Greg Girard

Greg Girard has spent his career examining the social and physical transformations taking place across Asia. His best-known work is perhaps City of Darkness, a detailed record of the self-governing Hong Kong enclave of Kowloon Walled City which, while it stood until 1992, was the most densely populated place on earth. Girard’s photographs have appeared in TIME, Newsweek, Fortune, Forbes, Elle, Stern, and the New York Times Magazine, and he has been exhibited in galleries in Seoul, London, Vancouver, Helsinki and New York.
