Spectacular Winning Images of The National Geographic Traveller Photography Awards 2023

National Geographic Traveller has revealed the winners of its 11th annual photography competition, celebrating the best in travel photography across categories like wildlife, landscape, food, people, and urban. The judging panel sifted through thousands of entries to come up with a shortlist of 18 finalists for each category, and from there, the final seven winners were selected.

Though only open to UK and Irish participants, the winning images are said to reflect some of the best photography from around the world, showcasing a mix of drama, intimacy, and warmth that capture unique perspectives of travel.

The grand prize this year went to Renato Granieri, whose winning photograph was an inspiring image of two newly qualified eco-guards working at the Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Sierra Leone, submitted in the people category and praised as a “firm favourite” among the judges.
