Photography Competition

As a leader in breathtaking you-are-there photography from across the world, National Geographic Traveller launched its inaugural photo competition in September 2012 in association with The Aurora Zone and Tesco. UK photographers were asked to submit their entries in one of six categories: People, Culture, Nature, Landscape, Adventure and City, and the winning photos were published in the Photography Competition supplement, free with the Mar/Apr 2012 issue
