Travel images entered into Celebrity Cruises and WPO competition showcased on Eclipse

Global Encounters
Winning image by Norman Price
The winner of a Global Encounters photography competition run by the World Photography Organisation and Celebrity Cruises has been unveiled as Norman Price from Plymouth with an image of the salt ponds of Maras in the Sacred Valley of Peru.

This and other entries taken by amateur and professional photographers during their travels around the globe will be showcased at a free exhibition in central London between May 7-10 at Somerset House.

Featuring 20 images from photographers around the world, the Global Encounters exhibition will also be launched on Celebrity Eclipse, on May 7 and will be available to view on-board throughout the summer when the ship sails in Europe.

Judges of the photography competition - travel adventurer, TV presenter and former picture editor of Tatler, Ben Fogle; Astrid Merget, creative director, WPO and Jo Rzymowska, managing director, Celebrity Cruises’ UK and Ireland – selected the images they felt best captured the essence of travelling encounters.

Rzymowska commented, ‘Seeing and enjoying more of the world is what our business is all about and we are thrilled to see the images prove how many people share our passion.’

Price won a cruise on Celebrity Eclipse and a Sony A5000 Compact System Camera.
