Korean Air will launch its 26th annual travel photo contest on July 12th 2019. The “Korean Air Travel Photo Contest” is one of the most popular photography competitions in Korea. Every year, participants submit photos featuring their travels anywhere in the world, beautiful scenery, nature and shots depicting people’s lives in different parts of the country. Entrants have until 19th August 2019 to submit their photographs.

This year’s competition is divided into two categories – General Awards and Special Awards. The General Awards are for photographs that capture the photographers’ most memorable travel moment. The Special Awards are themed ‘Go Beyond’ and entrants should submit extraordinary photos that show a new perspective or challenge that transcends the conventional; they could, for example, be aerial or underwater shots.

Those who are passionate about photography and travel, regardless of nationality, can submit entries to the ‘Korean Air Travel Photo Contest’; all photos must be previously unpublished work globally. Entrants can upload photos through the contest website, or submit the printed film camera work through mail or in person.
