Winners Of The 2015 National Geographic Traveller Photo Contest

 

The results are here for the 2015 National Geographic Traveller Photo Contest and the images are brilliant. It must have been a difficult pick considering they had over 17,000 entries from professional and amateur photographers who captured beautiful moments/landscapes in the perfect frame. The National Geographic Traveller Photo Contest also has one of the best rewards for the winner; an eight day National geographic photo expedition to Costa Rica and the Panama Canal for two, awesome, right? The competition is in its 27th year now and we must say it’s getting tougher every time.

May be the next time you are on a trip, you can take a spellbinding picture and grab an award. It’s difficult, but it captures some of the most iconic moments in the lap of Mother Nature. This one’s a treat for every photography enthusiast. Also, all of the images aren’t captured by professionals, some of these are just clicked at the right moment by amateurs and that has got them to bag the prestigious award.

Here are the pictures.
