We’ve teamed up with the UK’s lead­ing pho­tog­ra­phy tour com­pany, Light & Land, to of­fer read­ers the chance to win a once-in-a-life­time op­por­tu­nity: a 10-day travel pho­tog­ra­phy work­shop that will take in the best that Cuba has to of­fer.

Few places in the world pro­vide the photographer with more op­por­tu­ni­ties to cap­ture vi­brant and colour­ful images.

Your tour will be fo­cused on the western end of the main is­land in the cap­i­tal city of Ha­vana and its sur­round­ing prov­inces.

From the moment you ar­rive in Ha­vana, it be­comes ap­par­ent that this is a very spe­cial place. It’s a city of great con­trasts: from beau­ti­fully re­stored to faded grandeur, ev­ery street of­fers some­thing new to pho­to­graph.

While in the cap­i­tal you will stay in the lux­u­ri­ous Ho­tel Par­que Cen­tral, which is ide­ally lo­cated to al­low you to ven­ture far and wide across this cap­ti­vat­ing city, to pho­to­graph colo­nial squares, bright­ly­painted 1950s saloon cars, and the pho­to­genic Ha­baneros.

Af­ter three nights in Ha­vana you will travel to Cien­fue­gos, ‘The Pearl of the South’. Here, you will spend time ex­plor­ing the town, with its fine ex­am­ples of colo­nial ar­chi­tec­ture. The truly beau­ti­ful Teatro Tomas Terry is a gift for pho­tog­ra­phers, while the won­der­ful, palm-lined Male­con is a con­stant source of im­agery for those pre­pared to watch and wait.

Your next des­ti­na­tion will be the UNESCO World Her­itage town of Trinidad. Minute in com­par­i­son with the cap­i­tal, but ooz­ing char­ac­ter, Trinidad boasts myr­iad pho­to­graphic op­por­tu­ni­ties. Cob­bled streets, gor­geous pas­tel colours, sump­tu­ous colo­nial ar­chi­tec­ture and the oc­ca­sional cigar-tot­ing lo­cal make it seem as if you’re in the middle of a film set.

Fi­nally, af­ter the rel­a­tive quiet of our more ru­ral lo­ca­tions, you’ll head back to Ha­vana, and the Ho­tel Par­que Cen­tral, for your last two nights. Cuba is unique, a place not to be missed. The peo­ple, the mu­sic, the ar­chi­tec­ture and the over­all at­mos­phere of ex­cite­ment and en­thu­si­asm for life are in­tox­i­cat­ing.

This very spe­cial coun­try is un­der­go­ing rapid change, which will make your pho­tographs from this tour even more spe­cial – vis­ual re­minders of a coun­try and cul­ture that will never be the same again. The 10-day tour will in­clude in­ter­na­tional flights, air­port trans­fers, all ac­com­mo­da­tion and break­fasts, lo­cal trans­port in an air-con­di­tioned coach, and ex­pert tu­ition through­out the course.

The tour will be led by ac­claimed pros Paul San­ders and Peter Hen­drie, who will be on hand at all times to guide and as­sist you with your pho­tog­ra­phy, no mat­ter what your level of ex­pe­ri­ence.
