In November 2013, National Geographic magazine invited photographers from around the world to submit photos in three categories: People, Places and Nature. They received more than 7,000 entries from over 150 countries, with amateur and professional photographers across the globe participating. You can view the winning images in a full-screen slideshow here in LensCulture.
