2013 National Geographic Photography Contest
National Geographic invites photographers from around the world to enter the 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.
The Categories for entries are: (1) People, (2) Places, and (3) Nature (the “Categories”). There is no limit on the number of entries per person.
Judging consists of three rounds of evaluation, based on the following criteria: creativity, photographic quality and genuineness/authenticity of the content.

The overall grand-prize winner will be chosen from the three category winners and will be announced in December 2013.
