Travel Photographer of the Year, one of my favourite photography competitions (which I always enter and never win!), recently announced the 2007 winners. This year Cat Viton, from the UK, became the competition's first female winner and, among other prizes, won the opportunity to go to India and photograph the Dalai Lama.
Her winning photographs are beautiful, as are many of the runner-up shots, and as always with this competition, inspire me to travel to more new places. You can check them out here if you feel like getting a little inspiration for your 2008 travel plans.
