BACK IN JANUARY, we shared 14 winners from the National Geographic Travel Photo Contest 2012. The 2013 edition marks the 25th anniversary of the contest, which, judging by the quality of entries received in just the first month, is going strong. Photo submissions are being accepted through June 30, so check out the contest page for details and enter to win prizes that range from $200 B&H gift certificates to a 10-day trip for two to the Galápagos.
The 13 images + captions below are some of the standouts that have been submitted so far — you can see more by browsing the recent entries page. Here’s to announcing a Matadorian in the top rankings next January.
