Throughout the competition, we’ll have loads of hints and tips from our expert judges on how to AVOID being the World’s Worst Travel Photographer. But there’s plenty of time for practice. Here Simon Reeve tells us what he’ll be looking for in your travel snaps.

Adventurer, TV presenter and best-selling author Simon Reeve has travelled to over 110 countries while filming the BBC series Equator, Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn, and most recently, Indian Ocean. He’s worked alongside some incredibly talented travel photographers and has seen some of the world’s most photogenic places. Now Simon, as part of our panel of judges, will be judging your worst travel snaps in our cheeky new competition to find the World’s Worst Travel Photographer.
