Competition FAQs

What type of photographs/videos should I be creating?

We have given the competition the theme of Priceless to help inspire you. We’re not just looking for striking images but also images that show originality and humour. The theme is completely open to interpretation so have fun and get uploading!

Are there any specifications?

To comply with Facebook policy we need the images to be your own work and to be less than 2MB. Should you be shortlisted we may ask for a higher resolution image to be displayed on our website.

I’ve already applied for one of our projects – can I still enter?

Yes! You are still welcome to enter the competition. Any winners who are already booked onto a project can choose to take prize in addition to their placement or get a full refund on their placement and take the prize instead.

I’m an ex volunteer – can I still enter?

Yes! We welcome entries from previous volunteers. Just don’t expect to get preferential treatment because your pictures are of our projects!

A member of my immediate family works for Travel to Teach – can I still enter?

Unfortunately not – but your friends can!

Is there any limit to when I can claim my prize?
