If I asked you where you could find an epic clash between some deer and some riot troops set aflame, in the vicinity of a nocturnal, cloud-covered skyline, you might think it was the start of a rather bizarre joke. Well, think again, as this is exactly what's on show in this year's amazing National Geographic photo contest.
With over 1,500 entries already submitted, the National Geographic Photo Contest 2012 showcases some of the most striking images of the world around us. If you think you've got what it takes, National Geographic welcomes entries from anyone for the chance to win a grand prize of over £6,000, plus a trip to Washington D.C. to participate in the annual National Geographic Photography Seminar next January. The closing date for the competition is November 30th, so there’s still time to enter. The competition, needless to say, is absolutely incredible, so here’s a quick look at what you’ll be up against.
