Savannah: A Southern Journey Photo Submissions

Photo Contest Rules

The Tourism Leadership Council (TLC) is seeking submissions to determine the cover photo for the fourteenth edition of Savannah: A Southern Journey. Savannah: A Southern Journey is the premier guide to answer the question, “what do you do when you visit Savannah?” The beautiful coffee table book features breathtaking photography and valuable information for the guests. The book is placed in more than 10,000 hotel rooms throughout the Coastal Empire, reaching more than 10 million guests every year. Entries will be accepted through Friday, October 20th, 2023. Photos should depict a scene that embodies the spirit of Savannah. Finalists will be selected by a panel, and the winner will be selected by a public poll. The winning photo will grace the cover of this year’s edition; other submitted photos may appear in the pages of the book.

  • Photos must be the original work of the entrant.
  • Entrant must have ownership and all other legal rights to use of submitted photographs.
