  3. Aesthetic Value: This relates to the imagery, how well you capture the beauty of the ter-rain, the technicality, and relevance of the pictures/videos to you, and the spirit of being a 'True Wanderer'.
  4. Inspiration Factor: Does the entrant inspire? Does he/she explore the cuisine, the people, the music and the culture of the place? Does he/she make others want to make their own journeys? Does he/she represent an expression of freedom?
  5. Adventure Quotient: This is about the real spirit behind the ‘True Wanderer’ concept. How open are you to the unexpected pleasures and pains of an adventure? What is your con-cept of an ‘adventure’ and how do you translate it?
