The judges’ shortlist will be announced on 16 January 2017, and shortlisted entrants will be notified. National Geographic Traveller’s art editor Chris Hudson will then collate the judge’s votes to determine the grand-prize winner, portfolio category winner, four category runners-up and video category winner.
Winners will be chosen on or around 18 January 2017 and will be notified by e-mail within 3 weeks.
Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).
Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
