We asked for photos showcasing real travelers for the 2019 Virtuoso Travel Photo Contest, and you delivered. Hundreds of entries in this year’s competition featured sweet family moments in New Zealand, selfies on safari, and so many poses in front of the Eiffel Tower – testament that it’s a beautiful thing to get out from behind the camera (or smartphone) and put yourself front and center in the moment. Check out the top three images – selected by a panel of judges at Virtuoso – below.
