TPOTY Festival of Photography & World Travel at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)

Three days of photography and travel workshops, lectures and entertainment

Following on from the hugely successful Travel Photographer of the Year exhibition which drew large crowds to the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in May and June, TPOTY has launched its Festival of Photography & World Travel at the Society - three days of photography and travel events this autumn featuring a fantastic line-up of speakers from the worlds of photography, film and TV, travel and exploration.

To learn ‘how to’ or ‘how did they do that’ from the leading experts, improve your imagery, look back at the early days of travel, or get a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes of TV programmes that explore the wonders of this planet, the history and geography-steeped surroundings of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) are definitely the place to be this autumn.
