The 2010 National Geographic Photo Contest attracts thousands of creative and imaginative photographers from around the world to submit their photos in three categories: People, Places, and Nature.
Altrough the submissions ended, the grand prize winner will receive $10,000 and have their photo published in National Geographic magazine.
We’ve featured a sampling of some of the submitted photographs that National Geographic is sharing. Check them out and vote for which you think should be the winning shot!
