Winner and runners-up of gap-year guidebook and gap-year.com photography competition revealed May 25, 2012

Posted by Jonathan Barnes, editor in the gap-year guidebook.

We’ve been mightily impressed by the standard of entries to the gap-year guidebook’s 2012 Travel Photography competition.

It’s been a hard job picking a winner, but we’ve just about done it. There were so many great shots we’ve selected several more which we would like to use in the 2013 edition of the guidebook.

But first things first: the winner. We really liked this picture of a Sadhu (holy man) at Pashupatinath Temple in Nepal. It was taken by Sophie Porritt, from Fetcham, in Surrey.

So well done, Sophie. Your picture will feature prominently in the 2013 edition. Here it is:

We thought we’d let to have a look at some of the other entries too, who are all runners-up. We intend to use their work too. You can click on them for a closer look…

We loved this next picture. It was taken by Aleksandra Durdyn, of Szczecin, Poland, and was taken in Jodhpur – the ‘blue city’ of India.

This stunning shot was taken by Mark Lashmar on top of Table Mountain, looking over Cape Town, South Africa.

This quirky photograph of a buffalo was taken by Romek Fornalczyk, from Opole, Poland, on the island of Koh Rong, Cambodia, in May 2011.

This great shot was taken by Iselin Shaw of Tordarroch, Norway, at a school in Old Ningo, Ghana. Iselin was volunteering there through Projects Abroad and ‘received the most amazing welcome I have ever experienced’.

Soumalya Kumar De, of Kolkata, India, sent us this striking photograph, called In The Lap of Mother Nature…

Sergio San Martin, of Navarre, Spain, sent this picture of a school in Tanzania…

Finally, have a look at this shot from Susan Stephanie, from Bandung, West Java, Indonesia, taken in Inwa, Mandalay, Myanmar…

Thanks to everyone who took part in the competition. We really enjoyed looking at your photographs.
