2014 National Geographic Kids Photo Contest
Young photographers are invited to take part in the 2014 National Geographic Kids Photo Contest. Open to children ages 6 to 14, the contest is conducted in partnership with the U.S. edition of National Geographic Kids magazine and 11 local-language editions in Bulgaria, China, Egypt, Germany, Indonesia, Israel, the Netherlands, Slovenia, South Africa, Turkey and the United Kingdom.
The categories for entries are:
Amazing Animals (photos of pets, zoo animals, or wild animals),
Dare to Explore (photos of outdoor scenery),
Weird But True (photos that capture something odd or funny),
Wild Vacation (photos taken during vacation travels, including pictures of vacation destination landmarks, monuments, celebrations or festivals, food, etc.)
In December 2014, each participating international local-language edition will submit its winning entry in each category to National Geographic’s Washington, D.C., headquarters to be judged alongside the winning U.S. entries by a panel of National Geographic photography experts. Judging will be based on creativity and photographic quality.
