National Geographic Traveler Magazine recently awarded its 2013 photo contest winners --and they're stunners. 

The editors at the magazine had to narrow the winners from some 15,000 entries from around the globe --not an easy task.  First prize winner Wagner Araujo, who captured competitors in a Brazilian Aquathlon championship, will receive a 10-day Galapagos expedition for two for his efforts. 

Here are ten 2013 prize winning photos, plus the Viewers' Choice selection. Enjoy this virtual tour around the world.
