Traveller is proud to announce the sixth edition of The Big Picture competition for amateur photographers, in association with Fairfax Media's photo club, Clique, run by the photographic departments of The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age.

The overall winner and a partner or friend will travel on a luxury, eight-day APT Spirit of India river cruise for two in a twin Signature suite, courtesy of APT valued at up to $14,390. The prize includes economy return airfares to Kolkata from the winner's nearest Australian capital city, valued at up to $1500 a person. Trip highlights include a city tour of Kolkata, exploring its colonial heritage, including the bustling Dalhousie Square and St John's Church, before heading to the nearby Mullik Ghat Flower Market.

The cruise along the lower Ganges includes stops at Kalna, known as the City of Temples, and a guided cycle-rickshaw tour, an excursion to the brass-working village of Matiari and a visit to the former French colony of Chandannagar.
