National Geographic Traveller (UK) has announced the winners of its Travel Photography 2013 Competition, now available to view online at http://photos.natgeotraveller.co.uk . Mike Byford’s ‘Corfe Castle’ pipped all the other contenders to become the grand-prize winner.
National Geographic Traveller launched its photo competition last September in association with the Utah Office of Tourism, Delta Air Lines and Fujifilm. Photographers were asked to submit their entries in one of six categories: Action, Colour, Faces, Urban, Rural, and Wildlife.
Pat Riddell, Editor, National Geographic Traveller said: “We’ve had a great response to our second annual Photography Competition, and the standard of entries has once again been hugely impressive. Thank you to all those who entered and congratulations to the winners.
“Mike Byford’s ‘Corfe Castle’ pipped all the other contenders to become the grand-prize winner. This stunning shot was by far the judges’ favourite entry across the board — not only because it captures such an amazing sight, but also because Mike had the technical knowledge to shoot it in such a beautiful way,” said Chris Hudson, National Geographic Traveller’s Art Editor.
