Smithsonian Photo Competition has been announced the contest in the final 12th annually. Of these, the editors had selected ten photos from each of the categories such as natural world, travel, people Americana, Altered Images and Mobile. Up until March 30th, those compete in the arena of internet attention and collect votes. The winner of the Reader’s Choice would get a $500 cash prize, and would be announced alongside Grand Prize and Category winners. Note that the wheel would turn again and it would be opened on 13th Annual Photo Competition.
All was better for us. We got the chance to see more quality photography on display. That is, it heard their stories too. Some of the pictures were received after some purposeful seeking and others came to Smithsonian Photo Competition through sheer chance. For example, the frog is eating snake. Nicolas Reusens said “I could only get around five pictures before the frog was swallowed and the snake disappeared into the deep forest” and was hiking in the jungle between Monteverde and La Fortuna, Costa Rica, “Not until I arrived home did I realize I had taken one of my favorite shots of the whole trip”.
