2013 'National Geographic Traveler' Photo Contest Winners

For more than 100 years, "National Geographic" magazine has been acclaimed not only for its important scientific explorations but for the stunning images produced by its stable of talented photographers.

But readers of "National Geographic" and its sister publication, "National Geographic Traveler," are also adept behind the lens, as proven by the winners of the 2013 "National Geographic Traveler" photo contest, the magazine's 25th such competition.

The winners were chosen by expert judges from more than 15,500 entries and will appear in the December 2013/January 2014 issue of "National Geographic Traveler." The captions for these winning photos were written by the photographers themselves.

The photographer who took the winning shot -- Wagner Araujo -- will receive a 10-day Galapagos "National Geographic" Expedition for two.
