The National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest 2014 has recently concluded its submissions phase, and it saw more than 18,000 images submitted.
Needless to say, the undeniable beauty of our planet took centre stage once again. And as we’re obviously really excited about this whole thing, we’ve compiled the following 20 photos we absolutely love for your viewing pleasure.
We’ll just let the pictures do the talking now.
Oh, and winners will be announced at the end of July. Enjoy.
