National Geographic's 2019 Travel Photo contest is drawing to a close after six weeks of pictures from photographers around the world.

The final week's selection of pictures includes rhinos drinking in a thunderstorm and Tower Bridge in the morning light.

“We are looking for images that show us the world: its people, places, and cultures,” the magazine said in a statement. “Photos that tell the story of a place and travel moments that reveal what inspires you.”

Results of the contest will be announced later in the year. The winners will receive a cash prize and their work will be promoted by the publication.

The contest is open until 3 May and you can submit your photographs here.

The Independent has compiled the best pictures from this week's entries.
