Many thanks to all 39 members that contributed an image for our monthly competition (November 2019). The response by the Travel Group community was an informative glimpse into the diverse range of people and places that we, as photographers have visited, as well as real insight into what our interpretation of travel photography is. 

There were some outstanding images submitted, and the unenviable task of selecting a winner for the month fell to Richard Lewis ARPS, a long-standing member of the Travel Group committee. Richard commented that

"All the images submitted for this inaugural Travel Group monthly competition were of a high standard, and several were strong contenders to win it.

After careful consideration I selected the winner as A Touareg's Welcome. The RPS characterises 

Travel photography as communicating a sense of place. I believe the winning image met this criterion very strongly. 

The pose of the subject, the facial expression, the background location, lighting and texture all combined to emphasise the sense of place. In addition, the image was technically of a high standard."

So congratulations to Andrew Brochwicz-Lewinski for his image. This shot will go forward to our overall winners gallery. We hope to revise the competition site to include all author’s names in the near future and thank you to all that contributed, there are some very talented photographers out there. 

We will be publishing images for the December competition in due course, so please send your shots to travelcompetitions@rps.org. Closing date will be 28th December 2019 and the judge will again be Richard Lewis ARPS.
