National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest 2015: Some of the stunning photographs entered so far

By Claire Cromie

From a volcano erupting in Chile to a lion cub jumping on its mother’s head in the Masai Mara - these are some of the stunning images submitted to the National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest.

It is the 27th year of the annual photography competition, which awards the best travel images captured around the globe.

Photographers have so far captured the energy of a camel race in Oman, sunrise at Yellowstone's Grand Prismatic Spring and a now-endangered orangutan in what is left of Borneo's tropical rainforest.

The top prize is an eight-day expedition to Costa Rica and the Panama Canal - and there is still time to enter before June 30 at National Geographic.

Entries will be judged on "creativity and photographic quality".
