Growing up, National Geographic was the go-to magazine for jaw-dropping, unreal travel photos. We always imagined some professional photographer slashing his way through the jungles of the Amazon or hiking up some insane mountain to get a picture of an endangered monkey.

But now it’s your chance to have your photo grace the cover of the nature mag. For the first time ever, NatGeo Traveler is inviting readers to shoot a cover photo for the magazine as part of an assignment on Your Shot, National Geographic’s photo community. The winning photo, chosen by NatGeo Traveler magazine editors, will appear on the cover of the December 2015/January 2016 issue, which will feature the annual “Best of the World” list.

NatGeo Traveler magazine editor-in-chief Maggie Zackowitz is asking Your Shot members to submit photos of their “best place” — the favourite destination to which they’ve travelled — to correspond with the “Best of the World” magazine feature. The contest closes Sept. 22.

Here are 10 submissions that caught the editors’ eyes. C’mon, Loop readers, you can match these!
