It’s that time of the year again folks! The National Geographic Travel Photography Contest winners of 2016 have been announced and as usual we’re in for quite a treat.

While many novice travelers like us tend to capture our most beautiful traveling moments on camera, this years contest winners take the concept op travel photography to a whole new level.

So there’s three different categories, namely nature, cities and people. The Nat Geo judges have chose a top 3 plus 1 more honorable per categorie. Below we’ll briefly share with you each winning photo together with the honorable mention of each categorie.
