Get your passports out, ‘Travel’ is the theme for our annual Facebook photography competition for 2018.

Stuffed suitcases, speeding tuk tuks, bustling train stations or airline food, all just some of the features of the exciting world of travel. But so is exploring the pyramids of Egypt, hiking the Inca trail to Machu Picchu or taking a steamboat down the Mississippi.

What have you done over the last year? Do you have a great travel picture that could place you inside WTSDN’s winner’s circle this year?

The History of WTSDN’s Photography Competition

What The Saints Did Next was launched in two stages. First our Facebook Page on 8 October 2014, followed by the website/blog itself which went live on 10 January, 2015. So we sort of have two birthdays!

To celebrate our Facebook birthday each year, we hold a photography competition for our followers – What The Saints Did Next is all about photography after all.

We choose a theme then post all pictures that are submitted and our followers/visitors become the judges by clicking the ‘Like’ button on their favourites. The three pictures with the most ‘Likes’ will win fab prizes of St Helena t-shirts and baseball caps. Easy peasy.

Basic rules: Max 3 entries per person, short photo caption/description and date of capture required, photographs only from 1 January 2017 – 8 Oct 2018 and nothing too naughty. Photographer’s name will be published.
