2018 National Geographic Travel Photographer Of The Year Winners


Grand Prize Winner: Mermaid. “This calf was always with mom. A curious calf sometimes came to us. I was fortunate to have encountered a humpback whale with her calf on my first day snorkeling near Japan’s Kumejima Island. Most of the time, the calf stayed close to her mom. At one point, the calf began jumping and tapping its tail on the water near us – it was very friendly and curious. Finally, the mother, who was watching nearby, came to pick up the calf and swim away. I fell in love completely with the calf and it’s very energetic, large, and beautiful tail”.

Second Place Winner, Nature: Flamingos take off. “Thousands of flamingos are seen taking off from the colorful Lake Natron in Tanzania. Before taking off, flamingos need to take a short run on water to build up some speed. At that moment, their long, red legs create a series of water ripples on the surface of the lake. Looking down from the helicopter, these ripple lines look like giant aquatic plants flowing in the water. This photo was taken from a helicopter”.

Third Place Winner, Nature: Mars. “These natural sand towers, capped with large stones, are known as the Earth Pyramids of Platten. They are situated in Northern Italy’s South Tyrol region. Formed centuries ago after several storms and landslides, these land formations look like a landscape from outer space and continuously change over the years and, more accurately, over seasons. This natural phenomenon is the result of continuous alternation between periods of torrential rain and drought, which have caused the erosion of the terrain and the formation of these pinnacles. As the seasons change, the temperatures move between extremes and storms affect the area, pyramids disappear over time, while new pinnacles form as well”.

People’s Choice, Nature: Formation. “When we arrived at the Río Grande de Tarcoles in Costa Rica, I saw a fantastic formation of the sharp-mouthed crocodiles. I couldn’t help myself, and I started my drone and began to photograph them from the air. My heart was beating like crazy because I was incredibly excited, on the one hand I was a bit scared for the drone, on the other hand I was so happy about the unique moment”.

First Place Winner, Cities: Another rainy day in Nagasaki, Japan. “This is a view of the main street from a tram in Nagasaki on a rainy day. The tram is vintage, but retrofitted with modern ticketing equipment. A conductor is no longer on board – only the lone driver. The quiet streetscape seen through the front windshield of the tram somehow caught my attention. This view presents quite a contrast to busy urban centers in Japan, such as Tokyo and Osaka. The ride on a vintage tram through the relatively quiet main street was a memorable experience during our week-long visit to the historic city of Nagasaki”.

Honorable Mention, Cities: Alone in the crowds. “In this photo, I tried to bring the intense and stacked living conditions that Hong Kong is famous for into perspective for the viewer. With so many people living in small spaces, it’s strange to see all these amenities empty. As a solo traveler, I’m often alone in crowds and this photo resonates with me. I barely scratched the surface of this incredible urban environment, but this image really summarizes my experience here”. (Photo by Gary Cummins/National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest)


Third Place Winner, Cities: Reflection. “On an early morning, I wanted to photograph the fog, which is epic in Dubai every year from December to January – and almost every photographer’s dream in this part of the world. Sadly, I could not get access to the rooftop and so I peeped through the glazed window on a lower floor. I was overwhelmed and excited to see how beautiful the city looks, and my excitement was quadrupled as soon as I saw the reflection of the road and building on the building facade that I was in. I immediately opened the window to the maximum permissible amount and clicked a single shot with stretched hand”.

First Place Winner, People: Tea culture. “For a long time, I have been fascinated by the ancient Mongolian method of hunting with Golden Eagles. In early 2018, I followed one family of eagle hunters during their migration from winter camp to spring camp. Mongolia is sparsely populated, but the inhabitants have a very hospitable and welcoming culture. Tea for Kazakh culture is one of the attributes of hospitality. Tea isn’t just a drink, but a mix of tradition, culture, relaxation, ceremony, and pleasure. Damel, seen here wrapped in heavy fur clothes, drinks a cup of tea to keep warm from the chilly temperatures in Western Mongolia”.

Second Place Winner, People: Leida and Laelle – Will lift you up. “Since 2016, I’ve been involved with Haitian immigrants and refugees living in my city, Estrela. I have become friends with some families, and especially with twin sisters, Leïda and Laëlle. They say living in Brazil is like living in paradise – very different from the reality of their country of origin. They dream of becoming models and teachers, as a way to earn money to bring their other relatives from Haiti to Brazil, to live all near one another. On this day, they were playing in front of their home, improvising exercises to develop their imagination and creativity, as if they were actresses, and playing an imitation game with poses. Laëlle reached for Leida’s face and lifted her head up, showing her where she should look. At this brief moment, I took the photo”. (Photo by Tati Itat/National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest)


Third Place Winner, People: Challenging journey. “This photograph was taken from Dhaka’s airport rail station during the Eid vacation. People were returning to their village homes to spend Eid with families, and the rush at the last hour was immense. One man caught my attention: he was dangling on a train’s handle with his family, trying to get inside the train. At that time, rain started and the train began to slowly move. The family had tickets to board the train, but couldnÕt get to their seats. There are many people like him, who come to Dhaka for work – leaving their families and home villages – so when they get vacation, they don’t want to miss the opportunity to spend time with dear ones, no matter what”. (Photo by MD Tanveer Hassan Rohan/National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest)


Fog Taking Over a Town During Sunset. “I decided to take a cross-country trip by myself, and it was one of the most amazing experiences I have had. Seeing our country and how much it has to offer was magical. This was Sausalito, Calif., being overwhelmed by fog. It was amazing to watch from above. This was taken with a drone”.

 近年のライフスタイルの変化により、学校の始業時間の見直しが迫られている。

 始業時間を遅くさせた方が、学力や幸福度の向上につながるとする研究結果が報告されていたが(該当記事)、またしてもその結果が裏付けられたようだ。

 アメリカ・ワシントン州シアトルの高校2校で、始業時間をほぼ1時間遅らせてみたところ、生徒の睡眠時間が30分ほど長くなり、成績の向上にもつながったそうだ。

 さらに、低所得層の家庭の生徒らは遅刻が減り、出席率が向上するという効果まであった。
