About the event
London gains a major new summer photography attraction when the international Travel Photographer of the Year awards (TPOTY) exhibit the latest world-class, prize-winning images at the University of Greenwich’s 10 Stockwell Street building (London SE10 8BD). Open seven days a week, the magnificent, free-to-view exhibition runs from August 4th to September 3rd.
In addition, TPOTY is holding a series of low-cost photography-related events in Greenwich. These include Summer Evening exhibition openings, Summer Talks with renowned photographers including Eamonn McCabe - the presenter of BBC Four’s recent ‘Britain in Focus’ series - photography workshops and photowalks.
From fiery lava flows and birds-eye views of one of the hottest places on Earth, to a magical, snow-swirled New York street scene that echoes an impressionist painting and from the imperious gaze of an elusive, endangered Iberian lynx to wonderfully minimalist images of West Kirby, England, the photographs going on display are glorious.
Photographers from over 120 countries took part in TPOTY 2016, and the award-winning images give a beautiful, fascinating, entertaining and, at times, moving, depiction of life, cultures, wildlife and landscape all over the planet.
The exhibition also features a retrospective showcasing the TPOTY judges and organisers’ favourite images from first 14 years of the awards, while TPOTY sponsor Jack Wills is displaying some of the best shots from its recent Instagram travel photo contest.
No booking or tickets are necessary as the TPOTY exhibition is free to visit.
