Wanderlust Photo of the Year 2015... is now open!

The UK’s biggest and best travel photo competition is back! You could win an incredible photography trip or £3,000 cash – just for sending us your very best travel shots.

The four category winners of our Amateur competition will have the opportunity of a lifetime – a Wanderlust photo commission to Western Australia thanks to Tourism Western Australia – while the winner of our Portfolio contest will take home a cash prize of £3,000.

Entries can be snapped anywhere and at any time, but will need to fit into one of our four categories: People, Wildlife, Landscape or Travel Icons. If you're entering the amateur competition, you can enter up to 4 photos along any of the themes, but portfolio entrants must enter a group of 5 shots along one theme – they will be judged as a set.

Full terms and conditions can be found here
