National Geographic announces photo contest

Grab your camera and start shooting!

National Geographic Student Expeditions has announced its second annual National Geographic Student Photo Contest.

High school students are invited to submit a photo that conveys what exploration, discovery or adventure means to them. They must accompany their photo with a 100-word written description of the moment captured and why it was significant.

The grand prize is a summer 2013 London Photography Workshop, including roundtrip airfare and program tuition, valued at about $7,250.

The second- and third-place winners will receive gift certificates to the National Geographic Store for $250 and $100.

The contest is open to U.S. residents currently in grades 9-12. Submissions will be accepted until Jan. 15, 2013. A winner will be selected and notified via email by Feb. 8, 2013.
