Winning entries in Celebrity Cruises' photography contest to be displayed at Somerset House

The World Photography Organisation (WPO) and cruise line Celebrity Cruises have teamed up to launch a new photography contest, ‘Global Encounters’, which encourages photographers to capture and share their stunning imagery from across the globe. Winning images will be on display at Somerset House in London, May 2015.

The contest, ‘Global Encounters - Snapshot’, will run from now until 31 January 2015. Judges include Ben Fogle.

To ensure the photographers are able to showcase their travels from across the globe, the contest will focus on a selection of worldwide destinations visited by Celebrity Cruises. From August 2014 to October 2014, photographers can submit travel snapshots that capture the essence of the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and Alaska. From November 2014 – January 2015, submitted photos will need to be taken in the Caribbean, The Galapagos Islands and South America.

In February 2015 the judging panel will select an overall winner from the monthly finalists who will win the opportunity to have their work displayed at Somerset House in London next May, plus a two night stay for two in Central London. 

To find out more about ‘Global Encounters’, watch the Celebrity Cruises competition launch video with Ben Fogle.

Photography briefs for both contests and entry details can be found on The World Photography Organisation website.
