The “Four Corners” 

Want to win one of these fabulous magazine subscriptions from Zinio? Then enter the Emily Luxton Travel Blog Four Corners Travel Photography Competition.

We’ll be looking at images that have good compositions, interesting subjects, and which really capture a sense of place.

  • Cities – buildings, cityscapes, street scenes etc.
  • Landscapes – mountains, beaches, woodlands, the possibilities are endless!
  • People – portraits, crowd scenes,
  • Sense of Place – a photograph that truly sums up the destination.

You can enter as many categories as you like, but you can only enter once per category. 

All digital files must be 5 megabytes or smaller, must be in JPEG or .jpg format, and must be at least 600 pixels wide (if a horizontal image) or 600 pixels tall (if a vertical image).
