AFAR Travel Photography Awards 2018

Winners will be announced in November 2018

Photo Series Category

Please submit up to 10 photographs that work well together either as (1) a visual narrative or (2) a group linked by theme or style. Edit your selections carefully: winners will be judged on the strength of their submissions as unified groups of photos, not as individual photographs. Ten images are the maximum allowed—but fewer, more consistently edited photographs may be judged more highly than ten scattered images.

Get a Free Submission Review
By entering this category you will have the opportunity to get a free submission review by one of our trusted and qualified industry professionals — photo editors, curators, publishers, gallerists, educators, critics, consultants, etc. — who will provide meaningful feedback on the strengths in your entry, areas where you can improve, as well as personalized recommendations for additional career developing resources. Submission Reviews begin after the AFAR Travel Photography Awards entry deadline and will be completed by December 2018.

Entry deadline

Entry fee

$50 USD for up to 10 photos.

5+ Single Photos Category

Often, a single powerful photo captures our attention as important, artistic, meaningful, and memorable. A great photo can stand on its own, demonstrating a remarkable level of visual perception, sensitivity, and creativity. Single photos will each be judged separately as stand-alone images, not in combination with other images.
