National Geographic is known for beautiful photography of the world around us - from stunning landscapes to people of remote villages we may never see. The stories and incredible photos fill us with wonder about our planet. National Geographic continues to inspire us to get out in the world, to travel and explore.
And right now, National Geographic is looking for you to share your own images of the world: its people, places, and cultures. With the 2018 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest currently underway, not only could you inspire others, but also have a chance at some fantastic prizes.
As an artist, it could be a great idea to submit to as many contests as you can, whether or not there are actual prizes. The reasons for this include getting exposure for your work and to continuously challenge yourself. However, a good shot at some cash in your pocket is a definite plus.
Could it be you that's named the 2018 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year? Only one way to find out, so why not give it a shot? They are currently seeking images in three categories: nature, cities, and people.
There will be a grand prize of $10,000 and two first place winners will receive $2,500. With a deadline of May 31 at 12 PM (EST), you'll want to get in on this soon.
