National Geographic Photo Contest 2011

National Geographic is currently holding its annual photo contest, with the deadline for submissions coming up on November 30.  Last year they received more than 16,000 contest entries submitted by photographers from 130 countries. Three categories will be judged: people, places, and nature.  Images should accurately reflect the captured moment in time.  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 2012.

For the past nine weeks, the society has been gathering and presenting galleries of submissions, encouraging readers to vote. Check out the editors’ favorites or view every photo entered.
