National Geographic invites photographers from all around the world to sign up for their 2013 National Geographic Photography Contest. The grand-prize winner will receive $10,000 (USD) and a trip to National Geographic headquarters in Washington, D.C., to participate in the annual National Geographic Photography Seminar in January 2014.
There are three categories in which you can sign up: People, Places and Nature. Entry fee is $15 (USD) per photo.
There are still three days during which you can sign up – registration ends Saturday, Nov. 30, at 11:59 p.m. ET (U.S.). Here are just some of the most spectacular entries I’ve come across, hope you’ll enjoy them! We’ll also keep you posted on the winners, once they are announced.
Andrei's background is in geophysics, and he's been fascinated by it ever since he was a child. Feeling that there is a gap between scientists and the general audience, he started ZME Science -- and the results are what you see today.
