Enter the Nat Geo Travel Photo Contest!

The National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest has officially begun! The magazine will be awarding incredible prizes, so don’t miss your chance to win.

Enter today >

This year, we’re joining forces with Your Shot, Nat Geo’s award-winning photo-sharing community, to make the contest even more interactive. Check back to see if your photo is featured in one of our contest galleries, comment on other submissions, and share your favorites on Facebook and Twitter.

> The prizes: 

The grand-prize winner will earn two spots on an epic eight-day Nat Geo photography expedition through Costa Rica and the Panama Canal to experience—and document—some of the most spectacular wildlife and landscapes on Earth.

Other top prizes include a stunning six-day photo trek through Yellowstone in winter with National Geographic Expeditions and a six-day cruise on a windjammer schooner in Maine.

And, perhaps best of all, the ten prize-winning photos will appear in the year-end issue of Traveler magazine and on the National Geographic website!

> The deadline: June 30, 2015

Ready, set, go: See last year’s winners for inspiration, then submit your best travel photography today for a chance to have your talent recognized alongside the best of the best. Join the competition at natgeo.com/travelerphotocontest.

    A great way to share your amazing travel photos / videos to their exact locations and share with friends in map, satellite and street view is with a free App called Folkality (www.folkality.com). You can document and share your entire trip with friends (on FB and twitter) or just yourself. You can also follow friends on their big trips around the world as they post photos, videos and notes to exact locations. You can zoom in to their posts and check them out in street view and explore the cool new town remotely, as they’re exploring it on foot. You can limit what you see by reference to author and time of posting – so when you’re in a new place you can see what is happening around you by reference to public posts or you can see which of your friends have been there and what they did, saw and loved along the way!
