National Geographic Traveler magazine is every jet setter’s dream. Chock full of travel tips, guides to exotic locales and full-page color spreads of some of the most beautiful sights imaginable, the magazine could make even the most stationary homebody beg for adventure. So it’s no surprise each year when thousands of photographers worldwide provide images for the National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest.

The rules are simple: photographers submit a recent digital picture for one of four categories that include travel portraits, outdoor scenes, sense of place or spontaneous moments. The judges then evaluate submissions, and winners are announced relatively soon after.
