The coveted first-place prize of this year's National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest was awarded to Anuar Patjane yesterday for his unbelievable image of a humpback whale and her newborn calf off the coast of Mexico. The gold medal comes with an eight-day expedition on the Panama Canal aboard National Geographic's charter ship. Not bad.
A panel of photographers pulled the image, along with 9 other honorable mentions, from over 18,000 entries.
Check out the winning snapshots, and get exploring!
