Win ILTMA Luxury Photo of the Year!

Luxury Through A Lens: Introducing our ILTM Africa Exhibitor’s Photography Competition

Cape Town, 26 September 2022 – What is luxury to you? A Louis Vuitton Jenga set or your own private island à la Tyler Perry? In the 16th century, the ultimate splurge for the well-heeled was round, rare and tasty – the now-humble orange. History is full of examples of scarce items that became status symbols for the rich and famous. From tea to tobacco to ostrich feathers, the high price tags attached to these items defined what it meant to be wealthy and successful.

Let your imagination go wild!

No matter what your definition of luxury is, there are probably certain things that you would consider to be indulgences. Maybe it’s something more abstract, like feeling safe or having free time. As an exhibitor at ILTMA your image could reflect a once-in-a-lifetime experience, a decadent meal enjoyed on your travels, or that “feeling” of the finest linen in a beautiful suite.

To celebrate the launch of ILTM Africa in April 2023, we are inviting exhibitors to submit images inspired by our theme, “What Luxury Means To You”.

Whether you’re a photo junkie, snapper or a professional, your photo should be an exciting answer to this question from your one-of-a-kind viewpoint.

The winning image will be awarded the prestigious prize of ILTMA Luxury Photo of the Year. The material will be prominently exhibited at the show, with further exposure on social media platforms and event collateral.
