25 Stunning Entries for National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest 2012
The 24th annual National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest is over and the judges are about to announce the winners. Over 12,000 amazing images were submitted from all over the world in these four categories: Travel Portraits; Outdoor Scenes; Sense of Place; and Spontaneous Moments. National Geographic will announce the winners next month and meanwhile we are sharing 25 of our favorite entries.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you.
