New Photo Mission: RePicture Travel

By EyeEm Team - 3 min read

Feeling adventurous? Work your wanderlust in our newest mission with Getty Images.

Once you’ve tasted the zest of adventure, it’s hard to ever let it go. That’s part of the reason why people love exploring new destinations and cultures. This brand new mission is all about finding travel imagery that ignores the clichés of traditional travel photography, and instead focuses on capturing real experiences!

Faraway from the run of the mill images of people lounging on beach or at unidentifiable locations, travel photography should be relatable and feel truly local, personal and authentic. That’s why our new mission presents you with the challenge to RePicture Travel.

This is part 21 of our cooperation with Getty Images.

Your Mission: Capture the authentic, personal and unique moments you experience whilst travelling with your loved one, family, friends, or even on your own. Your mission is to capture modern travel, from packing your bag, travelling to the destination, to eating out at unique locally run restaurants, exploring the backstreets far off the beaten track to interacting with locals. Try to use the point of view perspective to create a truly immersive experience!

Your Reward: The top five images, which show an authentic and personal travel experience, will win a personal critique from one of the photo editors at the Getty Images offices in New York City. Another 20 images will be showcased in an EyeEm Image Collection.

Deadline: April 27, 2015
