Each year National Geographic opens its creative doors to highlight talented photographers from around the world through the National Geographic Travel Photo Contest and similar competitions.


The travel photo contest challenges contenders to “help us explore and experience our world through your travels” – and this year’s images rose to the occasion.


The entry period for this years contest closed noon ET on May 3 and every submission selected shows breathtaking snapshots of the awe-inspiring world we live in.


Broken down into three categories nature, cities, and people – these images “tell the story of a place, show us the natural world, or share visions of people from around the globe.” Check out to see the National Geographic editors’ favorites thus far and experience the world seen through these unique lenses.


You can check their site May 13-17 to vote for the People’s Choice winning photos. Final winners will be announced in June.


The grand prize winner will receive $7,500. Their winning image will be featured on the @natgeotravel Instagram account. Individual category prizes include: First place winners will receive $2,500, second place winners will receive $1,500, third place winners will receive $750.
