The annual National Geographic Photography Contest has closed their submission period as of Nov 30 2010 and this year some absolutely stunning photos were entered. One of my favourite things about National geographic other than their in-depth looks at anything academic is their amazing photography. I often tell my husband how I think that being a photographer for this publication would be my absolute dream job. This contest allows many others that feel the same, that very opportunity.
Below is a link to one publication that picked 47 of their favourites and under that is a link to the actual National Geographic site with loads of galleries to browse through- definitely worth a look.
