The 2016 Travel Photographer Of The Year Competition is no exception, and as you can see from the selection of pictures below, this year's judges have no easy task in choosing a winner from these amazing entries.

The Grand Prize on offer is a 7-day Polar Bear Safari for two (including airfare) at Churchill Wild-Seal River Heritage Lodge in Manitoba, Canada. But the real prize of course is simply being named National Geographic's Travel Photographer of the Year. The competition ends on May 27 so you've still got time to enter. So what are you waiting for? Grab your camera and get out there!
