We want to see your summer in action! Submit now for a chance at $1000 and to be featured online with Travel Photo Awards.

Summer. Is there any better time? We want the best and brightest pictures from your summer. Show us where you’ve been and what you’ve seen. No limitations on content other than we want to see pictures that embody the joy, the endlessness, and the beauty of summer. Selected by the TPA editorial staff, the winning photographer will receive $1000 and a feature online. Our runner-up receives $500 and will also be featured. All our favorite photos will be shared, but there can only be one winner. What does your summer look like?
