From awe-inspiring landscapes to powerful portraits, deciding on the very best shots of year’s National Geographic Traveller (UK) Photography Competition hasn’t been easy. Judges have combed through thousands of entries and whittled them down to a prized handful per category. With the shortlist announced soon, you're invited to come and take a look at the snaps that stood out. The judges’ three favourites in each category — Action, Nature, People, Urban, Portfolio and Video — will be on show for all to admire, with the winners revealed in the April issue. Come in, have a good look, and who knows — you might be inspired to enter next year.
