The 2014/15 Travelbound Photo Competition Winner

Last year, Naomi Powell took first prize with her stuning photograph of the Antwerp Train Station. 

I’d never imagine I would win!  The photo is from our university trip to Antwerp, it was such a visually inspiring city with so much to capture. I’d like to thank University of Gloucestershire's Illustration lecturers for letting us have so many opportunities to travel abroad. 

How to enter

This year we're giving students even more opportunities to get creative with Instagram by allowing entrants to share both pictures and 15 second video clips from their Travelbound residential trip. 

So, if you think you’re the next Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier-Bresson or David Bailey, or you just happen to capture that ‘wow’ moment whilst away on a Travelbound college or university tour, simply follow the following steps to enter:

  1. follow @Travelbound
  2. upload your photo or 15 second clip to Instagram
  3. tag @Travelbound with #MyTripFlick
  4. mention the name of your college or university within the comment section of your upload

With three great prizes up for grabs again this year, entrants have the chance to win one of the following:

1st Prize: £500 Amazon Vouchers

2nd Prize: £250 Amazon Vouchers

3rd Prize: £100 Amazon Vouchers

Professional Opinions Count

To help us with the difficult task of selecting the winners, we have enlisted the help of two judges with photographic and film backgrounds who will be assessing the entries with a chance to win one of our amazing prizes.

Our top tip

Whether your Travelbound college or university tour takes you to London or New York, Vietnam or Berlin, we want to see ALL your trip memories regardless of the destination. To be in with a good chance of making it into the final three, we strongly suggest that you (or friends) appear in the photo too. Capture a famous landmark or find that element of culture which makes the destination so unique.
