Every year National Geographic holds a photo contest. 2012’s results are in. In total, National Geographic says there were over 22,000 entries. Out of these 22,000 entries, a winner was picked for each category (‘Nature’, ‘People’, and ‘Places’), an overall ‘Grand Prize’ winner was selected, ‘Viewers’ Choice’ photos were picked, and some photos were given honorable mentions. Below are the three winners plus a few other interesting ones that received honorable mention or Viewers’ Choice. Check them out:
