Congratulations to Louis Montrose from California for winning Travel Photographer of the Year Award for his images of the Day of the Dead festival in Oaxaca, Mexico (as well as for a painted village in Burkino Faso.)
Photographers from 90 different countries submitted thousands of images for the contest. They were narrowed down to entrants from 33 countries and a total of 20 photographers scooped individual category awards.
The winning images give a fascinating view of life, culture and nature around the globe and will be exhibited at the Royal Geographical Society in London next summer.
