Smithsonian Photo Contest Finalists

6 May 2014Photography

Smithsonian.com announces the finalists for its 11th annual photo contest:

Our photo editors selected the 60 finalists from over 50,000 photographs submitted by photographers from 132 different countries. Ten were selected from each of six categories: The Natural World, Travel, People, Americana, Altered Images and Mobile, a new category this year.

Stunning photographs. Interesting that they decided to include a mobile category for the first time this year, but not surprising that all but one1 of the ten mobile finalists were photographed using iPhones.
