Your Heart Will Soar When You See the Photos From the NatGeo Contest
Over 17,000 entries later and the winners of National Geographic's photo contest are finally here, and they are extremely beautiful. The contest, which began in April and ended in late June, includes four categories valid for entry: Travel Portraits, Outdoor Scenes, Sense of Place, and Spontaneous Moments. After two rounds of judging, a grand prize winner is chosen, as well as a second and third and seven merit prize winners. Not only is it prestigious to win the grand prize, but it also includes an eight-day National Geographic photo expedition for two to Costa Rica and the Panama Canal.
All 10 winning entries are ahead, along with the photographer's original caption. Each one is so beautifully precious and awe-inspiring that it will definitely rekindle any wanderlust feelings.
