The Travel Photographer Of The Year competition is easily one of our favourites - a mix of professional and amateur photographers, it features some truly stunning photographs from around the world. Best of all, categories range from the really young (age 11) to those who do it for a hobby, to those who make a living from it.

Not only do they provide an often little-seen glimpse into corners of the world, they really get our travel bug going.

This week, at the Royal Geographical Society, an exhibition of all the winners will be on display. There's also a festival of photography which begins next week on 17 July, if you want to hear leading photographers such as Andy Rouse, Colin Prior, Steve Bloom, Nick Danziger, Chris Weston, Jim Marks, Martin Hartley and Philip Lee Harvey speak. Otherwise, it's free to view any other time.

If you can't make it down, however, you can always click through our slideshow of the beautiful shots that made the final cut:
