The Annual National Geographic Photo Contest

The Annual National Geographic Photo Contest is considered one of the most prestigious photography contests where the general public is allowed to enter. It offers not only extremely attractive prizes, but also the well-respected quality stamp of the National Geographic brand.

Submitted photographs are divided into three categories: Nature, People, Places. A team of professional judges then selects one winner for each category, and a final winner out of those three. The winners of each category win a prize of $2,500 and get their photographs published in the National Geographic magazine. The grand winner wins a total of $10,000, as well as a trip to the National Geographic HQ in Washington to participate in a special photography seminar!
