Your pictures being displayed during the Olympic Games? If you are a travel photographer, this is your chance! The picture above has been taken by last years winner: Larry Louie. The Travel Photographer of the year contest is an international one, and everyone can join. And - we love this-there is a category for photographers under 18!
Chris and Karen Coe started this contest back in 2003 to "proove the world that travel photography can mean far more than just a pretty postcard." Looks like they pretty much succeeded in doing so!
You'll find communities and competitions here. Both are motiviting and inspiring. In some way participants form communities too ;)
