This joyful moment was captured at a Rajasthani village school during Heart of India.

Comments from the judges: This shot hones in on a moment of natural joy. The photographer created a nice composition in which they were not afraid to crop in while still being aware of background, which tells part of the story.

2018 Wildlife Winner

Cincinnati, Ohio

An elephant and safari vehicle were captured during one of The Best of Kenya & Tanzania's many game drives.

Comments from the judges: We love how this shot is framed to include the safari vehicle and the lighting is beautiful—it looks like a painting. The dust kicked up in the background adds to the overall feeling.

2018 Fellow Traveler Winner
Robert Struwe, first-time traveler
Heber City, Utah

This student “photo-bombed” a shot of other schoolchildren interacting with traveler Mary Ann Betts on Ultimate Africa.

Comments from the judges: This image made us smile. The unexpected interaction between the child and photographer adds to the captured moment in the background where the children are all high-fiving the traveler.

A change of perspective in a bamboo forest during Japan’s Cultural Treasures.
