They are the shortlisted images in National Geographic Traveller (UK)’s Photography Competition 2019.

Launched in 2011, the prestigious annual competition seeks the UK’s best new travel photography talent across five categories: Cities, Nature, People, Food, and Portfolio.

The overall winner will be sent on a photographic commission for National Geographic Traveller — with this year’s grand prize a wildlife photography adventure in Slovakia’s Tatra Mountains, courtesy of Tatra Photography.

Pat Riddell, editor of National Geographic Traveller (UK), said: ‘At a time when we’re surrounded by travel photography, this year’s shortlist reminds us there’s so much more to using a camera than ‘point and shoot’. From documenting local customs and traditions to awe-inspiring landscapes and incredible wildlife, this year’s entrants prove once again how powerful a medium travel photography can be.’

The winners will be announced on 26 February at an evening event at Carousel, in London’s Marylebone. The winning photos can also be seen in a photography feature in the April 2019 issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK), on sale 7 March 2019, priced £4.60.
