Welcome to the Adventure Travel Photographer of the Year competition. An Yearly photography contest by Eccentric Travels. The ATP2016 nurtures an aspirational community that supports adventure photographers who wish to share important stories and influence the way people think through images.
The overall winner will be off for 10 Days on an Himalayan Photography mission to capture the drama and action of the Chadar Frozen River Trek. The chadar refers to the frozen-over Zanskar river, used as a means for crossing over for the inhabitants, to reconnect with the world during the months of January and February, when the ice is at its strongest. At an altitude of 3500 to 7000m (11,500 to 23,000 feet), This part of the Ladakh region is considered one of the coldest continually inhabited region in the world.
