Inspiring Nat Geo Travel Photo Contest entries

Posted by Aimee Pace on 3 April 2019

The inspiring National Geographic Travel Photo Contest is back again this year and accepting entries until 3 May 2019. Nat Geo shared some of the submissions they received so far and we couldn’t help but be struck be the sheer beauty of every photo.

The competition encourages camera-lovers to harness the power of photography and share their experiences from around the globe, entering their images under the categories of nature, cities and people.

Winners of the competition will rake in some serious winnings, with the grand prize being $7,500 or R106,202 and a slot on the National Geographic Travel Instagram page, while first place will win $2,500 or R35,400, second prize $1,500 or R21,240 and third place $750 or R10,620.

Here are a few of the latest impactful images that have been entered into the competition.
