The Expeditioner Photo Contest

November Photo Contest Winner: Cusco’s Inti Raymi Festival

Friday, December 2, 2011

The world is ripe with parties and festivals, each with its own unique flavor of the local culture, cuisine, love and dance. This month’s photo contest, chosen from our Flickr group, was a celebration of travel through partying. Our winning shot comes from the Inti Raymi Festival in Cusco, Peru. This festival of the sun has […]

The Expeditioner’s October Travel Photography Contest Winner: South American Warmth

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

What makes a place? Is it the food, the drink, the clothing? The winning shot from this past month’s Flickr photo contest suggests a definitive answer: people. Though culture can be defined by so many things, it is passed on and embodied by those within. Congratulations to Filippo Tafi and his wonderful shot of a […]

The Expeditioner’s August Travel Photo Contest Winner: Rural India

Thursday, September 1, 2011

For the August photography contest over at our Flickr group, we sought out shots of what you defined as rural life. The submissions we receive every month never fail to amaze. More impressive than their locale is the spot on rural-ness of each shot. This month’s entrants were from all over the globe: Namibia, Vietnam, […]

“Inspiring Vistas” Photo Contest Winner: Classic Western North America

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

“Inspiring Vistas” really couldn’t be a more loaded theme for our summer photography contest, and the submissions were truly everything you would imagine. More than an Indonesian volcano, a view of  Hawaii from the air, or the longing of young cowboys at a rodeo, it is the colors of Canada’s Kananaskis country that inspire us […]

The Expeditioner’s May Travel Photo Contest Winner: Hanoi Eatery

Thursday, June 2, 2011

Dear Hanoi, you can have your cacophony of unrelenting horns. Me? I’ll revel in the bliss that is your cuisine. This month’s photo contest winner, Jonathan Hall, did just that. In his own words: Hanoi’s dining scene can be daunting at first as there are rarely any menus. You just walk along until you see […]

April’s Photography Contest Winner: Finding Uniqueness On London’s Tower Bridge

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

This month’s inspiration comes from Jason Rodman and his incredible photo sense. Some people just “get it.” Here’s what I mean: You walk into your 400th Korean temple and take the quintessential photograph of the gate so grandma can scrapbook it once you return home. But, for some reason, that’s just not good enough . […]

March Travel Photo Winner: Montana’s Winter Streets

Friday, April 1, 2011

In a last-ditch effort to hold onto yet another fading winter season, March’s themed celebration was simply put: Winter. Though most of us prefer sand over snow, the snowy submissions helped build anticipation of impending spring (and the related travel season!). Much to my surprise, the monthly staff emails discussing a winner eventually tallied up […]

February Travel Photography: The World In Black And White

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

One of the coolest things we’ve discovered in the development of our Flickr group is the fact that we cannot really control the awesomeness. Not that we’d ever want to, it’s just that we didn’t foresee the amount of time wasted just surfing through the wealth of photos shared by the talent in our group. […]

January’s “Island Vibes” Photo Contest Winner: A Thai Pier Perspective

Tuesday, February 1, 2011

What is going down as the closest vote in the long and epic history of our monthly photo contests, this pier makes all of the below-zero temperatures most of us are expereincing disappear. This month’s winner comes from Srdjan Stepanovic. Here’s what he had to say about the shot: I shot this while on a […]
