The 2011 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

You might want to dust off those travel pics that you loved so much and enter them into the 2011 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest.

Pictures can be of places, wildlife, and people that make traveling memorable, evoking a sense of delight or discovery—or both.

Submit digital entries online in any of these four categories:

  • Travel Portraits: Locals working, playing, celebrating
  • Outdoor Scenes: Landscapes, aerials, wildlife, waterscapes
  • Sense of Place: Pictures that evoke the essence of a place
  • Spontaneous Moments: Fun, quirky, surprising, and unrehearsed moments

Deadline: July 11.

Winning images will be showcased in the November/December 2011 issue of National Geographic Traveler magazine. You’ll also have a chance at winning one of these amazing prizes:
