Shot Across the World: The GuruShots Winners’ Showcase

Thu, 25 June 2020
Mick Dees, from United States

We teamed up with GuruShots, the “world’s greatest photo game”, to find the images that encapsulate what travel means to you. Hundreds of photographers entered our Shot Across the World challenge; these were the pictures you loved the most.

“What makes travel so special to you?” It’s a question we posed to photographers on GuruShots, an online platform billed as the “world’s greatest photo game”.

For our challenge, Shot Across the World, hundreds of travel enthusiasts and snap-happy shutterbugs captured images that spirited us to some of Earth’s most exciting corners and under-the-radar destinations. We’ve gawped at brooding clouds drifting beyond temples in Thailand, admired New York’s city lights twinkling in the East River and were charmed by a particularly sprightly zebra darting across the savannah.

GuruShots users from across the globe cast 27 million votes to help us curate the cream of the cameraperson’s crop. Now you can be transported by more than 100 winning images.
