The photo nominations for National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year are pretty special...

You may be struck with a scarcely controllable urge to go travelling when you see them unfortunately.

THE ANNUAL NATIONAL Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year award always throws up  some stunning shots. And this year’s no exception.

From stunning vistas around the globe, to the savagery of nature, to people from the far corner of the planet going about their business, the array of photographic talent on display is stunning.

Top prize in the competition is $10,000 (€8,600), a feature on the National Geographic Travel Instagram, and, naturally enough, the title of National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year 2018.

If you’ve a special photo or two hiding out in the depths of your phone or camera roll, you still have time to get it into the running.

Entries will shut at 12pm today though, so make haste.

In the meantime, you can view all the entries for this year’s competition here.
