Vote for the Readers’ Choice Winner!

We are excited to announce the finalists of the 14th Annual Photo Contest. This year, we received more than 48,000 submissions from photographers in 146 countries and territories. From Michael B. Hardie’s photograph of an octopus hitching a ride on the back of a sea turtle in Hawaii to Kamil Nureev’s shot of reindeer pulling a man across the Siberian tundra, these 70 images stood out to our photo editors as the most unique and memorable.
