The National Geographic 2014 Photo Contest invites photographers, both professional and amateur, to submit photographs in three categories: People, Places and Nature.
Submissions should accurately reflect a captured moment in time which means photographs should not be digitally altered or enhanced.
The Grand Prize Winner will receive $10,000 and a trip to National Geographic headquarters in Washington, D.C., to participate in the annual National Geographic Photography Seminar in January 2015.
Below are some of the editors’ picks from the entries so far. You can see all submissions on the National Geographic website.
