Win a £500 Just You Holiday Voucher

Calling all photographers - our Photography Competition is back! Get your cameras and phones at the ready on your next Just You tour, or dig out those wonderful photos from a previous Just You holiday, and you could be crowned Photographer of the Year 2023.

Over the next six months our competition will have a different theme each month, so there’s something for everyone to get their teeth into. We’ll choose a winner every month, and they’ll receive a £50 Just You holiday voucher. Those winners will then go forward to the final, and one will be named Just You Photographer of the Year 2023.

With that title also comes a £500 Just You holiday voucher. So, take a look at the categories, see which suits your next trip and get snapping!

To enter simply email your photos to photo@justyou.co.uk before the 15th of the following month, including the theme you are entering in the subject of your email. Once you have sent us your photos why not share them on our Facebook page, Instagram or on Twitter using #JustYouHolidays

The monthly themes are listed below and the only rule is that your photo must have been taken while on a Just You holiday:


As we travel the world, the vibrant and evocative landscapes which often contrast quite dramatically from the nature and great outdoors we’re fortunate to have back home, make for a fascinating tour. Whether it’s witnessing orangutans doing their thing in Borneo, the wow moment of getting to observe the iconic species endemic to the Galapagos Islands, or the other-worldly deserts around Jordan as part of a 4x4 dune safari, what’s your best capture of nature at its best?


Travel allows us to connect with the people and world around us, so this month share your favourite snaps which convey the inspiring people or cultures you’ve encountered on a Just You tour. It could be the time you spend with an indigenous Bribri community in Costa Rica, encounters with people at the heart of our Just You Cares projects with Planeterra, or perhaps a group activity on tour which helped you connect with your fellow travellers.


They say that a new destination is best explored through its cuisine, so make the most of your Local Flavours experiences on tour and capture your favourite foodie moment. It could be dining with one of India’s most notable families as part of the Spirit of India tour while wearing traditional Indian dress, farmhouse dining in Tuscany or learning how to make Limoncello in Sorrento… send us your favourite foodie finds.


As you know, we offer a number of walking holidays as well as walking tours of key towns and cities as part of our Just You tours. But, on every single solo tour, we think every path you take leads to a new adventure. So send us your favourite shots, it could be a path that leads somewhere unexpected – a stunning vista you weren’t expecting, a surprising journey you enjoyed as part of your free time at leisure, or a memorable walking holiday around the beautiful island of Crete with Just You.


There’s something quite enchanting about dusk and the show of twinkling lights that emerge right after, and we want to see your best night-time scenes. It could be a spectacular scenes captured from a night-time entertainment show, the dazzling lights of Las Vegas on one of or an evening nature walk in Jasper National Park as part of our USA tours… the options are endless!


We’re keeping things open for this month’s entries, send us your favourite photo from a Just You tour that depicts one of your top moments on tour…


As a month popular for festivities, we want to see your favourite captures of a celebration. It could be one of your fellow travellers celebrating a birthday, a religious festival talking place while you’re away, or a group celebration for a wonderful escorted tour with Just You!
