See some of the spectacular entries to one of the world’s most prestigious photography contests – but could you do better?

There are more than seven wonders of the world: certainly if these remarkable images are anything to go by.

NatGeo-May22-01-590Jal Mahal During Sunrise by Ravikanth Kurma ‘Beautiful view of Jalmahal during sunrise. I wanted to capture the palace and the other two water structures. Locals come to feed the pigeons and the fish in the pond. It is peaceful early in the morning’

NatGEo-May22-05-590White Rhinos by Stefane Berube ‘We tried all day to get a photo of the white rhinos. In the morning, I woke up to the rhinos grazing in front of me’

For they are just a handful of the photographs that already have been submitted to National Geographic’s annual traveller competition.

NatGEo-May22-02-590Colours Of Earth by Maja Bednas ‘People in the Dharavi slum in Mumbai produce mostly recycled articles and pottery. The postures of these two women at the local pottery store, taking a short break for conversation, express dignity, while the colours of their saris blend perfectly with the scenery’

NatGEo-May22-06-590Ocean World by Chris Schmid ‘A bird’s-eye view of a surfer on the famous beach of Praia Mole in Florianopolis, Brazil’

The magazine has staged the award for nearly three decades, attracting as many as 18,000 entries every year, and it’s not too late for you to enter – photographs are accepted until 30 June.
