From cruising Côte d'Azur to exploring the ruins of Crete, the Mediterranean offers a breadth of sights to behold. Tantalising cuisine, clear blue waters, dreamy little towns and perfect climate throughout the year - it doesn't get more exotic than this. Whether you're lucky enough to live on the Mediterranean coast (if yes, we are eyeing you with raging jealousy) or have spent a relaxing holiday in the region, upload your beautiful shots to our 'Discover the Mediterranean' Photo Challenge while we go away to book our next holiday there!

"What a stunning aerial shot! This photo perfectly translates the breathtaking Mediterranean preserved nature reserves. The shades of blue and green complement each other in the way nature naturally does. The snaky roads of the Mediterranean Calanques are a particularly enjoyable experience for tourists and locals who love to take a break to admire the view from above." - Lilia
"This shot perfects every bit of the exotic frivolities one would expect from the Mediterranean! Despite it being an aerial shot, one can view every bit of the action of the waves in the ocean!" - Rumaisa
Other entries that won us over:
Photographer: Felice Bellini
Location: Camogli, Italy
"This image gives a beautiful elongated view of the Southern Italian city. The bright mix of colours is a common aspect of the Mediterranean cities. The Mediterranean sea has a very important place in the lives of the Mediterranean people: whether they get their weekly fish at the local fish market, go for a picnic at the beach or even hang around the port." - Lilia
Photo: Old part of split panorama
Photographer: Ivan Rebić
"This is a very powerful panorama of a Mediterranean city from up high. The clouds covering the city and the mountains give an impression of movement. The red and orange of the roofs complement the blue of the bright sky and the sea in a very exceptional way." - Lilia
