Student Competitions

Like with so many other things across the globe, the 2020 programme of GTTP competitions looks a bit different this year.
Because of Covid-19, we have cancelled the research competition for 2020.
The photography competition will continue and will be run by our Regional Director in Jamaica – the deadline for entries is October 2020.
Both the travel writing and sustainability competitions are on hold, so keep a close eye on our social media feeds to keep up to date with changes as they happen.

GTTP Competitions

GTTP runs four competitions:

  • A Research competition
  • A Travel Photo competition
  • A Travel Writing competition
  • A Sustainability competition.

The competitions are open to all GTTP students.

GTTP Research Competition

This competition requires student teams to research a Travel & Tourism opportunity or issue in their local or national context.  In 2020, the winning school in each country will attend a regional conference where they will meet teachers, students and GTTP Global Partners. This competition is sponsored by the GTTP’s Global Partners and the Aldo Papone Endowment. For details, click here.

GTTP Travel Photo Competition: “Something Special”

The goal of the Digital Photo competition is to show a special aspect of a student’s community to people who have never been there.  The photo should make the viewer want to come visit.  Photographs could be of a historic building; a natural feature, such as a lake or mountain; an event, such as a procession; a local specialty, such as food; an activity or sport; a person or a group of people.

GTTP Travel Writing Competition

This essay competition reinforces the GTTP’s emphasis on developing an individual student’s research, writing and photographic skills. Students compete for national and international cash prizes.   For details, click here.
