National Geographic photography winner announced

 22nd Feb 2012

The winners of the inaugural National Geographic Traveller competition have been announced and the images are available to view in the magazine's upcoming issue.

Joanna Harper took the grand-prize for her image 'The Boy who Likes to Swim'. Chris Hudson, National Geographic Traveller's art editor, explained that the judgement was based on the fact that the image captured a “beautifully intimate moment”, but that it is also “technically fantastic”.

The success of this launch event could well encourage amateur photographers to send their own pictures in the next time the event is held, but they might want to brush up on their skills first to ensure they have a chance at the prestigious title. For help with skills Photography Courses offer E books, DVD and tutorial videos.
The prizes on offer also make this a worth-while photography competition to enter. Ms Harper has won a spot in the magazine's photography competition supplement as well as a spectacular trip to see the Northern Lights in Finland with the Aurora Zone and a top-of-the-range camera and kit courtesy of Tesco. 
Six runners-up have also been selected to win a Nikon S6100 Red Camera from Tesco.
Mr Hudson added: “We’d like to thank everyone for their support in our inaugural National Geographic Traveller photography competition. We have been impressed at the incredibly high standard of submissions, whether professional or amateur ­ and we think Joanna Harper is a truly worthy winner.” National Geographic run competitions throughout the year.
