Daily Telegraph show launches travel photo contest

November 21, 2007

The hunt is on to find the nation?s best travel pictures in the Daily Telegraph Adventure Travel Show photography competition.

Boasting a top prize of a trip to Cuba, the theme of the contest is the ?spirit of adventure travel?.

?Having an adventure doesn?t have to mean seeing your life flash before your eyes,? say organisers. ?Adventure travel is anything that?s new, different and exciting to you. So, if you?re proud of ?that shot? you snapped adventuring abroad, then simply upload it on

The winner will bag a place on a week-long photographic holiday called ?spirit of Cuba? in autumn 2008. The prize includes accommodation and tuition, but not flights.

Short-listed entries will go on show at the Daily Telegraph Adventure Travel Show at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London, from 25-27 January 2008.

The winning image will also be used to advertise the 2009 travel show.

Rules state that copyright remains with the entrant but that organisers have ?royalty-free, non-exclusive licence to publish and otherwise use the material in any way that we want, and in any media?.

At the time of writing it was not clear whether this relates only to publication in connection with the competition. AP had yet to receive a reply to our request for clarification on this.

All entries will be included on the travel show website, say organisers.

The winner?s name will be published in the online gallery, but organisers add: ?Please note that due to operational reasons this accreditation will probably not be possible if these images are used elsewhere on the website or in other media.?

The closing date is 4 January 2008.
