Over the last 13 years, readers have submitted nearly 350,000 images to Smithsonian’s annual photo contest. These photos have transported us to the far corners of Earth, captured spectacular, split-second moments and introduced us to fascinating people and unique landscapes. Browse breathtaking images captured by photographers from nearly every country in the world: search by location and topic, and explore photographer portfolios for inspiration.

We are excited to announce the finalists of the 14th Annual Photo Contest. This year, we received more than 48,000 submissions from photographers in 146 countries and territories. From Michael B. Hardie’s photograph of an octopus hitching a ride on the back of a sea turtle in Hawaii to Kamil Nureev’s shot of reindeer pulling a man across the Siberian tundra, these 70 images stood out to our photo editors as the most unique and memorable.

Voting is now open for the Readers’ Choice winner! Voting is limited to one vote per user per day and runs through March 27 at 11:59:59 PM Eastern Standard Time. The finalist who receives the most votes will be announced alongside our Grand Prize and category winners on March 28.”
