About the competition

Hotshots is a rolling, weekly photographic competition open to amateur photographers.

You can enter your travel images on any subject.

Each week, the photographs that are judged to be technically best are shortlisted for a prize, while all entries are considered for publication in the Holiday Snaps section.

You may enter as many times as you like, but will only qualify for one prize, even if you are selected for a prize slot more than once.
