2016 Travel Photography Contest - Keeping Score

As mentioned in the initial Travel Photographer of The Year 2016 blog post, we are holding a number of keyword subject contests over the coming year, with competing photographers earning points in each contest as they work towards a final score.

Scoring

Three points for an Editor's Choice award and a bonus point if an image was taken specifically for the contest and posted in the contest's discussion thread in the Top Travel Pics forum.

One (People's Choice) point may also be awarded to one or more images near the top of the Winners' leaderboard (with at least five votes) when public voting is finished.

Special scoring to be announced for the final rounds, to keep things interesting.
