National Geographic photo contest finalists on Instagram

National Geographic Magazine has long made a name for itself in the world of photography and wildlife — it contains incredible and amazing pictures. So, it’s not surprising that Instagram became the first brand to gain 100 million subscribers.

To celebrate this achievement, National Geographic announced a photo contest on Instagram — users had to post their photos with the hashtag # natgeo100contest. For 24 hours, the magazine received more than 94 thousand photos from around the world.

Photo editors and photographers National Geographic selected 10 finalists, giving their subscribers to choose the winners.
