What Prizes will the Winners Receive?

Now for that question we’re sure you’ve all been itching to ask. What official prizes are on offer for those photographers who wow the judges the most?

We’ll start with the most prestigious and sought-after prize of them all. The photographer worthy of first place (and the title of the 2017 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year) receives a 10-day trip for two to the Galápagos Archipelago with National Geographic Expeditions.

Known as “Darwin’s living laboratory”, The Galápagos Archipelago allows visitors to experience “up-close encounters with unique species such as flightless cormorants, marine iguanas, and domed giant tortoises” – in other words, it’s every travel and wildlife photographer’s dream.

The itinerary of this trip is quite flexible, allowing the winner to take advantage of this extraordinary wildlife sanctuary. They will have the opportunity to go on nature walks with local naturalists, swim, snorkel, or explore the waters by kayak, glass-bottom boat or Zodiac. Other highlights of this prized trip include: witnessing incredible interactions between animals in their natural habitat and meeting endangered Galápagos giant tortoises at a National Geographic–supported captive breeding program before observing these creatures in the wild.

There’s also great news for those who don’t win the grand prize but still submit an impressive photograph in their category. Each of the three categories (Nature, Cities, and People) will feature three winners, with first place being awarded $ 2,500, second place receiving $750, and third place taking home $500.

It doesn’t just stop there though. All winners will also receive a year-long subscription to National Geographic Traveler magazine, plus all winning photos will appear in an upcoming issue of National Geographic Traveler as well as in an online feature. Imagine having your work reach a global audience of millions; just think about the ways that will elevate your photography career!

You know what they say though – you’ve got to be in it to win it. With entries closing on June 30, 2017 at 12 p.m. EDT, you’ll certainly want to get your most impressive photograph submitted as soon as possible.

What are the Judges Looking for?

National Geographic Travel states: “Each year, photographers around the world send [us] gorgeous images that captivate and astonish. Our judges are looking for photos that tell the story of a place and travel moments that inspire.”

Photographers of all levels are encouraged to submit their most wanderlust-inducing shots to the annual competition, and keep in mind that the goal of travel photography is to take readers around the world to places they might not have been to themselves.

To further explain what the judges are particularly looking for in the winning submissions, the Editor in Chief of National Geographic Traveler magazine, George Stone, states the following:

“Travel is about curiosity, and travel photography is about capturing and sharing that curiosity with the world. Our Travel Photographer of the Year contest surfaces extraordinary visions that inspire us all to get out and explore – with camera in hand.”
