This year’s National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year contest is now officially accepting entries, and the submissions that have already come in are pretty mind-blowing. There are three categories to which photographers can submit their work: nature, cities, and people.

The grand-prize winner will be named the 2016 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year and get a seven-day Polar Bear Safari for two at Churchill Wild — Seal River Heritage Lodge in Manitoba, Canada. Airfare is included.

Below, see 15 submissions to the “cities” category. The contest ends May 27.
