The Washington Post‘s annual Travel Photo Contest generates some of the most remarkable amateur photography in the United States.

The 2020 winners have been announced and their work is mesmerising. To enter the competition, photos must have been taken during 2019 or 2020, and only photographers who make less than 50% of their annual income from photography were eligible.
