Usually at Destinations Travel Show, we host the Wanderlust Photo of the Year Competition, where crowds come to admire and vote for their favourite finalist photos. Due to Covid-19, we had to cancel this year’s competition. So we are taking the time to have a look back at some of the final photos from over the years. We hope you enjoy this curated gallery of past entries as much as we did! Be sure to tag us in your social posts to let us know which is your favourite!
