Smithsonian Magazine 2012 Photography Contest

THE Smithsonian Magazine, the printed monthly publication of the world’s largest collection of museums and research centres, the Smithsonian Institute, recently released a list of finalists for their 10th annual “Photocontest”.

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
  • Travel
  • People
  • Americana
  • 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.
