New Category
(Photo Series): Aerial Photography

This year’s photo series category calls for breathtaking views of Earth’s surface from high above—to give an even bigger picture of our planet. Photo series should provide a unique top-down perspective of natural world environments—and possibly include their inhabitants, as seen by photographers in aircraft, drones, or other methods. See Competition Details for more information.
