When it comes to quality photography, there’s no doubt that National Geographic is pretty much the pinnacle. It’s widely held that being published in a Nat Geo issue is fair testament that you’ve “made it”.
This belief is no doubt a large influencing factor in the minds of the thousands of talented hopefuls currently submitting amazing images across the three broad categories People, Places & Nature, in the 2010 National Geographic Photography Contest.
Up for grabs is a $10,000 purse as well as the invaluable opportunity to have the winning image published in National Geographic magazine. With entries closing on November 30 at 9am, there’s about 10 days left for entrants to get in their submissions.
With eight weeks of entries already in, the following are some of my favourites from all three categories. The leading image for me thus far, however, is the photo I have led with in this post titled “Cockfight” by very talented photographer “Ario Wibisono”.
