Home Away From Home Travel Photo and Video Competition

It might not be your home but it certainly feels like home.

There is something comforting about being in an environment that feels friendly and personable. Bring us those travel experiences that show off your happy place – immerse us in how you feel in that place.

What this brief is about:
- The sights, sounds, smells and taste of a place
- Anywhere away from home, it could be the next street or the other side of the world
- Places that are not always featured on the front cover of travel guides
- People that you travel with and the people that you meet along the way

What this brief is not about:
- Locations that lack character
- People that are awkward in front of the camera
