15 Incredible Photographs From National Geographic Traveller Contest

The annual photography competition held by National Geographic for the year 2017 has taken the submissions in. This year’s competition is being held in partnership with CEWE PHOTOBOOK. The participants set the standards extremely well this year. 

Judging panel has announced the shortlists. They have narrowed down the choices to three finalists in each of the six categories namely action, nature, people, urban, portfolio and video. These photos range from lions drying off in South Africa’s Nambiti Game Reserve to a shadow cast by Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro. 

Pat Riddell, the editor of National Geographic Traveller (UK) said-

“The entries for our Photography Competition get better every year, and this year’s is no exception. The shortlist highlights some of the exceptional submissions and it’s been really tough to whittle it down.” 

The winners will be announced on 28 February in London. According to a press release, the winner of this competition will be sent on a photographic commission to Myanmar and Iceland for the magazine.
