From a volcanic eruption, to a mosque in prayer, to a lioness at sunset, the entries for the 2019 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest are guaranteed to fan the flames of your wanderlust.
The competition recognises the best travel photographer from the past two years. “Our Travel Photographer of the Year program is a way to show that our readers are among the world’s best travellers and photographers,” said George Stone, editor in chief of National Geographic Travel, in a statement. “We are passionate about visual storytelling and we hope that our contest will inspire our global audience to explore the planet and use photography to tell amazing stories.”
Nat Geo is accepting images until May 27. The winner will be crowned Photographer Of The Year and receive a seven-day Polar Bear Photo Safari for two at Churchill Wild–Seal River Heritage Lodge, located on the banks of the Hudson Bay in Canada. Take a look at some of the incredible entries with captions from the photographers above.
