Photographer of the Month

Celebrating and showcasing the world’s best photographers

Are you a budding or professional photographer with a story to tell? Perhaps you would like to showcase your portfolio, share your favourite shots with our audience, or pass on some pearls of wisdom? Apply to be Bradt Guides’ Photographer of the Month (PotM)!

Our PotM series showcases the works of some of our the world’s best photographers across our website and social media channels.

In terms of content, the campaign will be split into two parts:

  1. We’ll create a themed photo article in which you select some of your favourite shots from your travels, along with short captions that explain your choices and give ‘how-to’ tips for budding photographers.
  2. We then use these individual photos and captions on our social media accounts.
