2016 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest

Well you all know that we have a thing for photography here at Living 360, and let’s face it- there no better (or more prestigious) photography competition than the annual National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest. At least that’s how what we think. There were so many amazing entries this year, and we have had so much selecting our favourites below.

Hope you enjoy these as much as we did.
