Andante Travels Archaeological Photography Award

December 29, 2009

Capture the Past in Photos, and you could win a fabulous Canon EOS 500D, or £100 book voucher for the 3 runners-up

We are proud to launch our Archaeological Photography Award. Your photographs will help to record the present day state of sites for future generations as we build up an archive of photos from all over the world.
We have been taking people on journeys through the ancient world for 25 years; introducing, engaging and interesting them in the story of mankind as told by the things they left behind. We have already built up an impressive collection of images taken by our own staff and by the talented photographers amongst our guests. Now we want to extend this and attract photos from everywhere – even sites we do not yet visit, and from everyone – whether they have travelled with us yet or not.

Big names of Archaeology – your best pictures of the big name sites e.g. Giza, Pompeii, Machu Picchu
Endangered Sites – your pictures of archaeology in danger: sea erosion, landslide, building development or mass tourism

People and Archaeology – your pictures of people interacting with archaeological sites – talking about them, examining them, pondering on them, drawing them….
Special Category for 2010 – ʻBest of British Archaeologyʼ Sponsored by Council for British Archaeology – showcase your favourite archaeological images of the British Isles.

The overall winner for best picture will receive a fabulous Canon EOS 500D digital SLR, the best in its class.
