In case you haven’t heard, we’re currently in the midst of a photo contest. Travel + Leisure is on the hunt for the planet’s next great travel photographer—and it could be you. We’ve pulled together some of our favorite entries from the first week of Round 1, but there’s still plenty of time to enter.
You’ve got until November 14th to enter as many photos as you’d like into six different categories: Water, Nature, Architecture, Staycation, Sunsets and Sunrises, and Animals. After the open call closes, our panel of judges will convene to choose nine photographers that will go on to the second round and win a pair of Bose QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones. We’ll announce the finalists on December 6th, and give you the opportunity to vote for your favorite shot. Each finalist will be asked to create a short video highlighting their winning photo and how they captured it.
The winner will have their work featured in Travel + Leisure and will also win a bucket list trip—a seven-day T+L Journey to Colombia, including accommodations, airfare, and $500 to spend on your trip. You can read all about the grand prize trip here.
