Smithsonian Magazine's 9th Annual Photography Contest

There are five categories you can enter in this year's Smithsonian Magazine's photography competition: Altered Images, Americana, the Natural World, People and Travel. Winning images will be printed in Smithsonian magazine, will be exhibited in the Smithsonian Institution and winners will also receive cash prizes. The Grand Prize winner will receive a Smithsonian Journeys trip to Yosemite National Park as well. There's plenty of time for you to gather your best images to enter — you have until December 1, 2011 — but keep in mind that competition will be fierce. Smithsonian says they are looking for images with high "technical quality, clarity and composition, but also a flair for the unexpected and the ability to capture a picture-perfect moment."

New this year, you can share your entries online with friends and family, view all entries and vote online for the People's Choice Award.
