Voting has now been opened across the diverse range of stunning entries submitted from around the world, sorted into the following categories:
- The Natural World
- Altered Images
Below are just a few of my favourites from this year’s selection. I rarely get the eventual winners right when it comes to this kind of thing, so I can highly recommend visiting Smithsonian.com to browse through the full list of entries for yourself.
Voting for the “Reader’s Choice” award is open now, with the winner to be announced later this month.
