The judging process

The head judge is Becky Redman, art director of National Geographic Traveller (UK).

All entries will be moderated by the art director, who’ll compile a shortlist of top entries in each category.

The National Geographic Traveller (UK) team will send the shortlist of entries to each independent judge. The independent judges will in turn select their three top entries for each of the six categories. The art director will then collate the judges’ votes to determine the winners.

There will be one winner from each of the six categories. Five category winners will be selected as runners-up and each will receive a runner-up prize. One category winner will be selected as the grand prize winner and will receive the grand prize, as well as the runner-up prize. The grand prize winner may be selected from any category.

Independent judges will be announced in September 2022. Winners will be notified by email by 28 February 2023. Decisions of the judges are final and binding.
