I just received notice from the organizers of the Travel Photographer Of The Year contest announcing the 2007 winners.
According to TPOTY's announcement, it received entries from 51 countries in 2007, covering every continent and, for the first time, we saw entries from Iran, Saudi Arabia and Ukraine. Over the three rounds of judging, 14 judges assessed this year's entries.
The overall winner of the Travel Photographer Of The Year title is Cat Vinton, a UK-based photographer for her work in a Mongolia.
However to me, the most interesting category was "One Planet Many Lives" won by Timothy Allen for his work in Bhutan and Nagaland, followed by Larry Louie's work on Tibetan worship. It's been an excellent year for the talented Larry, since he also won recognition in the National Geographic contest as I wrote last week.
