National Geographic issued a contest earlier this year called ‘Explore Our Changing World‘. In its first month of being live, over 300,000 people submitted photos to be considered for the winning prize.

There’s still time to submit if you’ve taken any pictures worthy of consideration, or if can shoot off some quick pics in the next, I don’t know, few hours until the contest deadline. Regardless of whether or not you submit, this is an important contest in this day-and-age.

Twitter, Facebook, and other avenues of social media are replacing actual media as our news sources and methods of exploring the world. Photography is one of the best ways to get your point across in the least amount of words possible.

Just viewing an image of a pollution-coated China is enough to start a call to action, or a wounded child escaping a war-torn region of Africa. We as humans are more empathetic when we see first-hand the impact of our actions; be it environmental damage, etc.

If you’re the next Ansel Adams, then this platform is for you. And if you missed the contest this year, you can start exploring the world for next year’s opportunity. In the meantime, check out some of the most recent submissions we consider our favorites.
