2019 National Geographic Travel Photo Contest

The National Geographic Travel Photo Contest is accepting entries! Harness the power of photography and share your stunning travel experiences from around the globe. Enter your most powerful photos for a chance to win the 2019 National Geographic Travel Photo Contest. We are looking for images that show us the world: its people, places, and cultures. Photos that tell the story of a place and travel moments that reveal what inspires you.

Submit to three categories: nature, cities, and people. Submit your photos that tell the story of a place, show us the natural world, or share visions of people from around the globe. Help us explore and experience our world through your travels.




The grand prize winner will receive $7,500. Their winning image will be featured on the @natgeotravel Instagram account. Individual category prizes include:

First place winners will receive $2,500.

Second place winners will receive $1,500.

Third place winners will receive $750.


Due to legal restrictions in some territories, not all residents are able to participate in the contest. National Geographic is actively working to clear as many countries as possible to participate in future contests.
