We're delighted to be sponsoring this year's Guardian readers' travel photography competition, along with our colleagues at Tourism KwaZulu-Natal.
The winner of each month's competition (who must be a UK resident) will see their shot mounted and displayed in the end-of-year exhibition for the public at the Guardian's offices in London, while the overall winner will go on an amazing 11-night adventure to KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, in 2015 courtesy of Africa and Beyond and Tourism KwaZulu-Natal.
From the Drakensburg mountains to the beauty of Umhlanga rocks, the winner will have the opportunity to explore the incredible landscape and shoot pictures to be featured in a future edition of Guardian Travel.
