One of our favourite Wanderlust diary dates finally arrived for 2022's Travel Photo of the Year – the UK’s largest amateur travel photography competition. After a year off due to the pandemic, the Wanderlust Travel Photo of the Year competition came to a head at Destinations London. With submissions being taken throughout the year, all finalists were on display in a stunning gallery that you could visit within the show's halls.

This year, four winners won a trip of a lifetime to capture the magic of Singapore on camera. Post-pandemic, Singapore is open and easy to visit. Enjoy quarantine-free travel in Singapore regardless of your COVID-19 vaccination status, subject to pre-departure testing for those not fully vaccinated.

Winners were announced at the show on Friday 3rd February 2023.

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."
