Travel Photo Carnival Winner Round 1

Travel Photo Carnival Winner Round 1

Thank you to everyone who entered into the first round of the Travel Photo Carnival! We had a great time hosting AfterGlobe’s Travel Photo Carnival and are excited to bring you our first winner. It gave us a way to provide an outlet for travel bloggers to present and show off some of their best photography.  We loved it!

A recap on how the Travel Photo Carnival works:

Each round a new theme is chosen and presented for travel bloggers to submit their best/favorite photo for that topic. The host (AfterGlobe this round) of the contest will then select a winner from all of the submissions. Once a winner has been crowned, the Travel Photo Carnival will move to the winner’s site to host and pick their own theme for the next round.

Travel bloggers can submit one entry per website based on the week’s theme. All submissions have one week to be submitted. At the end of that time, the host blogger will select a new winner and the winner than repeats the whole process on their website.

A special thanks to Oh, the Places We Will Go, Leaving Cario, Wanderlusters, The Chaotic ScotSuitcases and Sippy Cups, Trek Snappy, and Outside the Limits  who all shared the Travel Photo Carnival hashtag, #travelphotocarnival.

The carnival ran for one week, Tuesday June 17th through Monday June 24th. The crowned Travel Photo Carnival Winner will be announced below with the carnival being passed on to them to host the 2nd round. All Travel Photo Carnival winners/hosts will be listed on each round along with a direct link to their website.

There were so many amazing submissions that it was hard to pick just one. We looked at each photo individually concentrating on their composition, colors, and overall feel. After much discussion, we narrowed it down to the top three.

First our honorable mentions go to-

Charli from Wanderlusters!
