National Geographic invites photographers from around the world to enter the 2018 National Geographic Photo Contest. The grand-prize winner will receive $5,000 (USD) and a feature on National Geographic’s Instagram account, @natgeo.

Eligible contestants can visit to submit photographs in any or all of three categories: Wildlife, People and Places. Once submitted, contest entries will join Your Shot, National Geographic’s online photo community, where members can comment on photos and share their favorites. The entry fees begin at $10 (USD) per entry for Week 1 and increase weekly as follows: $15 for Week 2, $20 for Week 3 and $25 for Week 4. There is no limit to the number of submissions per entrant. Entries must be in digital format and submitted electronically. The contest ends Thursday, Nov. 15, at 12 p.m. EST.

“The photo contest is an exciting opportunity for photographers from all corners of the globe to show us their unique perspectives on the people, places and wildlife they encounter in their own lives, said Jennifer Samuel, a National Geographic photo editor and judge for this year’s contest. “I hope we receive a broad range of diverse and innovative entries this year and encourage people to apply.”

One first-place winner will be chosen from each of the three categories, and the winning photographs will be published on the @natgeo Instagram feed. The first-place winner will receive $2,500, second place will receive $1,500 and third place will receive $750. The overall grand-prize winner will be chosen from the three category winners and will be announced in December 2018.
