National Geographic Traveler photography winners

Trawling through social media updates is a miserable practice at the best of times - but it inspires even more envy than usual in the height of summer. Photos of beaches, tan lines and other 'proof of fun' images clutter walls and feeds, making you question why you're still electronically linked with these people. If they were posting photos like these though, you'd make more of an effort to stay in touch.

These are the winners of the 2014 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest - the magazine's annual competition to find the best images from amateur and professional photographers taken on the road. As well as prizes for the top three photographs, merits were handed out by the judges to a further seven images - selected from over 18,000 entries.

Check out the winners below - there's not a Margarita in sight.
