Aerial Photography Highlights From The 2015 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

Jun 17, 2015

Every year, National Geographic puts out a call for submissions for its travel photography contest. Thousands submit but only a select few make the cut. The call for entries began on April 7th, and, already, National Geographic has been floored with the quality of some of the photos sent in.

The theme of this year's travel photo contest is aerial photography, that is, photographs taken from above. Planes, skyscrapers and even drones are all fair game. If you're interested in the contest, you can submit your own photos here before the end of this month.
