Each year the Washington Post holds it's annual Travel Photography contest and judging by some of the best photo submissions so far it's going to be a good one. This years competition marks the 17th annual contest and is only open to amatuer photographers. Now that submissions are closed it won't be long before the winners are announced. You can read more about the competition here.
A huge fan of outdoor and travel photography we just had to share these. We don't know about you but we've got the urge to pack our bags and go and explore!
