Travel Photography Awards

Winners & Finalists
 
Announcing the Winners, Finalists, and Jurors’ Picks
For AFAR’s first-ever Travel Photography Awards, we joined forces with LensCulture and United Airlines to highlight the diverse and creative ways photographers celebrate the world. More than 20,000 submissions came in representing all genres of travel photography, from street scenes to wildlife. AFAR’s highly respected panel of photography judges selected the winners, whose work we’re proud to present here. First-place winners also receive a pair of United Polaris International Business Class tickets, and all winners receive a cash prize and publication in the January/February 2019 issue of AFAR.
