“The Earth is Art, The Photographer is only a Witness ”.~ Yann Arthus-Bertrand

The “National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest” is now just around the corner. It is currently taking submissions, with entries for the prestigious competition which are accepted until May 27, 2016. The grand prize winner will receive a seven-day Polar Bear Safari for two in Churchill, Canada. Photographers from all over the world have started submitting their entries for the opportunity to win the prestigious contest.

Here we were able to share some of the spectacular early submissions, images that range from lonely snow covered hills to jam-packed metropolises without room for green space.
