Open Judging Results

A twenty-something rite of passage for many, a lifelong pursuit for others. Packing a rucksack and hitting the road, staying in hostels, maybe a tent, maybe out under the stars on a distant beach, and seeing the world very much on your own terms. Images entered into the contest might be of backpackers, and the backpacker life, or of some of the sights that are popular with backpackers.

This Premium Contest is worth 3x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.
