Yesterday we revealed 6 of our favourite entries into our competition to send a budding travel photographer to Morocco to capture its sensorial souks, vibrant villages and majestic mountains on camera.
There were so many brilliant entries into the contest, each with a unique and inspiring twist on the adventure theme.
It was a close call, but there could only be one winner. The lucky person will be going on a 15 day adventure tour of Morocco with Intrepid Travel – giving them the perfect opportunity to explore and photograph one of the world’s most photogenic countries.
Without further ado… we present the winning photo!
Congratulations, Alison Campbell! Your shot will be sending you to the bustling streets of Marrakech and the fresh air of the Atlas Mountains.
Alison’s story behind the image: “I took this photo in India in April, whilst having a nail-biting experience travelling through Jaipur at rush hour. It was like being in the middle of the Notting Hill Carnival with a plethora of sights and sounds coming from all directions. It was a perfect opportunity for people-watching and the girl in the photo seemed just as transfixed with us as we were with her.”
Why we love this photo: Captured on the go (seen from the side-view mirror peeking from the bottom corner and slight reflection of the window), this shot captures the essence of adventure when we travel. Amid a busy Jaipur street at rush hour, the little girl’s direct gaze arrests you; her eye contact both drawing you into the scene and revealing the foreignness of the photographer.
We look forward to seeing the shots from Alison’s Moroccan tour! Stay tuned to this blog, where we’ll publish a photo essay of Alison’s trip once she returns.
