Travel Image of the Month - May 2020 :  deadline 31st May

These images have been submitted as part of our monthly competition. Please ensure that your images are submitted at 580px wide and 72dpi. 

Submissions are of a single favourite photograph each month that, for you, reflects the essence of travel photography.

There is no restriction on height of the shot – as long as it is reasonable. Also, and especially in light of current events, there are no restrictions on the age of the photograph you submit, apart from the requirement for the chosen image not to have previously been submitted before into an RPS competition. This, it is hoped, will encourage community members to revisit some of their previous shots which meet the stated criteria. 

The submitted images for that month, (e.g. May 1st - 31st) will then form part of a monthly gallery that can be viewed on the website, from which a featured image for the month will be chosen.

The closing date for this month is the 31st May allowing time for the community to upload images in these difficult times.

• The winning shot will be added to the Travel Image of the Month page on the website, with the overall monthly winners competing to be the Group’s best travel photograph of the year.
