2017 Photo of the Year Competition

By Mountain Kingdoms - 11th April 2018

No comments

This year we have received a fantastic selection of images from your adventures around the world. Our five final photos perfectly reflect our range of travel experiences, from a traditional festival in Bhutan to a Polar cruise through Antarctica. It proved a challenge for us in the office to pick just five images from the fabulous array of photographs we received this year, however, we got there in the end, and as you can see, our final shortlist is very impressive!

We asked you to help us decide the winner and, after many weeks of voting, we are delighted to announce that the winner is Mr Harrison, with his fantastic photo of a Bagan river sunset in Burma. Many congratulations to Mr Harrison who wins £150 towards his next holiday booked with Mountain Kingdoms. Read our latest news post for more details on how Mr Harrison captured this stunning image.
