Exploring remote places is one of the most rewarding things to do as a photographer and for this photo contest, we challenged you to show us the most remote places your lens has been able to capture. From mountain tops to vast deserts that stretch longer than we could ever imagine, this contest is for exploring our planet in ways never seen before.

A special thanks to friend and professional photographer Jack Anstey for his collaboration as a guest judge in this photo contest. Jack is an outdoor and adventure photographer from the UK, living and working out of his campervan, usually in the Scottish Highlands. With a love for the natural world, mountains, wildlife and remote landscapes, Jack finds himself naturally drawn to Northern landscapes.
