2018 Grand Prize Winner
Jim Moran, 2-time traveler
A new perspective of the iconic Eiffel Tower captured during The Seine: Paris to Normandy River Cruise.
Comments from the judges: This photo offers a unique perspective on a commonly-photographed landmark. The statues lead your eye to the Eiffel Tower, and we love the light and blue/gold color contrast.
2018 Culture Winner
Deborah Perry, 5-time traveler
Newton Center, Massachusetts
Even the ducks were captivated by a girl playing the flute at the Tribe of Three Gorges, a stop on our China & the Yangtze River Tour.
Comments from the judges: We loved the simple framing and the inclusion of the ducks. The pop of red in the girl’s clothing makes her stand out amongst the mist, and we appreciate that this location can be identified without a specific landmark.
2018 Scenery Winner
Rachel Leasure, 7-time traveler
To the photographer’s delight, flowers were still in bloom in late October on our Romance of the Rhine & Mosel River Cruise.
Comments from the judges: This shot was taken from an interesting angle, and has both beautiful lighting and color. It shows a good use of foreground and framing—the walkway leads your eye right to the castle.

Marlow, New Hampshire
During the Best of the Canadian Rockies: Calgary to Vancouver, this photographer captured a stunning shot of Spirit Island on Lake Maligne in Jasper National Park.
Comments from the judges: We enjoy the simplicity and natural beauty of this scene. It gives off a serene vibe, especially with the reflection on the water and the fog rolling in.
2018 Travelers Winner
Elizabeth Benevides, 9-time traveler
This traveler looks tiny next to the rock formations in Antelope Canyon in Page, Arizona during Southwest National Parks: Arches, Zion, Bryce & the Grand Canyon.
Comments from the judges: There is a great use of vertical panoramic cropping here and the inclusion of the person shows the grand scale. The exposure also brings out the details in the rocks.
