The Nile is often referred to as the key of life, and without its presence one could argue that Egyptian civilisation wouldn’t have existed. In an attempt to capture the Nile's beauty and importance, the European Union Delegation launched its 8th annual amateur photography competition entitled Egypt is the Gift of the Nile. Launched on September 15th, the aim of the competition was to capture the most breathtaking photos showcasing the Nile's significance in providing life. Since that time, the competition has seen hundreds of entries and, on Sunday, the European Union Delegation to Egypt announced the top 12 winning photos, which arguably put #ThisisEgypt to shame.

Although they picked 30 winners, their Facebook page seems to only show the top 12 entries. Despite the fact that these photos are allegedly taken by amateurs, they totally look professionally stunning. Congratulations to all those who entered - we encourage you to keep snapping as these were some of the best photos of Egypt we’ve ever seen.
