Wanderlust Best of Travel


Sponsored by Australia’s Northern Territory Tourism Board Australia's Northern Territory
Wanderlust, the UK’s leading travel magazine, has been bringing to life the most awe-inspiring destinations and off-the-beaten-path experiences since 1993.

Wanderlust’s Travel Photo of the Year has been running almost as long, starting in 1997, and has become the UK’s leading amateur travel photo competition. To celebrate Wanderlust’s special 30th anniversary year, they have curated a gallery of the ‘best of the best’, taking Wanderlust's favourites from the winning photo entries of years gone by, to showcase at Destinations London. These will be on display in a stunning gallery that you can enjoy while visiting the show.

Lalibela, Ethiopia
John Seager, Environmental Consultant

Judges comments:

"The light is very special and isolation of the subject is focused"

"Despite the original being taken in colour, the photographer has clearly seen the potential for mono in this exquisite portrait, beautifully framed and technically spot on with those motes of dust hanging in the air."
