TTA – Travel Tales Award is a true Photographic Award, with an open call to collect the projects that will remain in 2023 open from  February until  May, with a simple registration and a participation fee of 30 Euros for each project registered for the Award.

Furthermore, since last year we have added a call dedicated to single images, TTA World Pics, conveyed through Instagram, using our channel and the hashtag #TTA2023:  almost 4000 imagines have been published last year on IG with that Hashtag #TTA2022, to get at final 40 winner pictures.

On the website each photographer can participate with one or more portfolios or stories, composed of max 15 images and a synopsis, which can be a real “travel diary” or a story that accompanies the use of the images, helping to understand the meaning of the journey experienced or the human experiences, the teachings of life or the fascination of places or travel companions.

The 2023 call (february/may for Single Shots on IG, July for portfolios and stories) will be used to select the projects, which will be screened by a commission of experts and professionals composed as follows:

  • Federica Berzioli, chief editor of IL FOTOGRAFO Magazine
  • Angelo Cucchetto, owner of and ISP, editor of CITIES
  • Loredana De Pace,  Journalist and curator
  • Roberto Gabriele, photographer and owner of
  • Gaetano Gianzi, Ad of Corigliano Calabro Fotografia Festival
  • Younes Mohammad, Journalist and photographer
  • Gigi Montali, photographer and Ad of Colorno Photo Life Festival
  • Simona Ottolenghi, owner of and curator of Otto Gallery
  • Giovanni Pelloso, director of IL FOTOGRAFO Magazine
  • Anton Valchev Savov, EFIAP, ESFIAP and FIAP Liaison Officer for Bulgaria
  • Giedo Van Der Zwan, photographer

Once the call is closed, the first project selections will take place: 50 travel portfolios or stories will be selected, for their beauty, evocative power, depth of vision and use of photographic language. The list of the 50 selected works will be published by end of July 2023.

The commission then will examine the works in selection and will proceed to confirm the projects that will access the proposed initiatives, and their authors will be notified.

The commision will also do the final selection from the Instagram 2023 Call, that will be  lanched on february 1st with the Hashtag TTA2023.

The planned initiatives are numerous, and include portfolios on Il Fotografo magazine, gallery on Magazine Cities, a large collective at Corigliano Calabro Fotografia in July and in Colorno Photo Life in September, the exhibition of the ten finalist projects in Rome in November, the book for 15/20 authors that will be presented in February 2024 and various prizes.

On november 2023, the award ceremony of the selected authors will take place at OTTO Rooms & Photogallery in Rome, with a public event broadcast live on social media and the opening of the exhibition of the ten finalist projects.

In February 2024, as 2023 edition “finissage”, will be published the book Travel Tales III, during an event dedicated to travel photography and travelers in Milan organized by
