World Photography Day Contest – Top 10 winning entries

world photography day

“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.” - Marc Riboud

The World Photography Day (19 August) celebrates the sheer brilliance of a photographer. On this occasion, we at holidayme used our platform as a medium for budding photographers and travellers to showcase their artistry through their pictures. We ran a #ClickWinTrip contest, inviting the best travel pictures from our active and engaged community on social media. The response was overwhelming – nearly a thousand entries so we had a hard time choosing one winner! Who, by the way, wins an all-inclusive paid trip to Prague!

Winner of holidayme’s #ClickWinTrip Photography Contest


Mark Chequito's (@travelling_expat2018 on Instagram) winning entry is a stunning capture of Giethoorn, a mostly car-free village in the Netherlands, so charming with its boat-filled waterways, footpaths, bicycle trails and centuries-old thatched-roof houses!

But it felt unfair picking out just one picture from a sea of amazing photographs! So we picked out 10 more pictures that deserved a mention. Stunning, surreal, and some works of pure genius - here are the top 10 entries of holidayme's #ClickWinTrip travel photography contest! (listed here in no particular order)
