This year's competition marks 25 years of age. Editor in Chief Keith Bellows stressed: This age makes it the longest photo contest in the world. Over the past few years, the picture quality is greatly improved. Photographs began to reflect a more complex way of seeing and interpreting the world, making the process of judging even more difficult. We invite photographers to work assertive and competitive with the best masters of their craft.

It's amazing to watch the several families of elephants around the river. The kids run and play, but at the same time did not depart from their mothers. The photographer was lucky to capture this magical moment mother and child.

Contest will end on 30 June. The main prize - a 10-day expedition to the Galapagos Islands on board the National Geographic Endeavour. For photographers this is a unique opportunity to close contact with the unique animal species, such as flightless cormorants, marine iguanas and giant tortoises.
Although the contest has just started, National Geographic has already received hundreds of amazing work that could well apply in the first place.
