Popular Photography's 16th Annual Readers' Contest

We present exceptional work done by our readers.

Now in its 16th year, our annual Readers' Photo Contest gives you the opportunity to present exceptional work in six categories: Action/Sports, Architecture, Candid/Humor, Nature, People, and Travel/Places. With more than 4,400 submissions, it took our editors and, in the final round, a panel of outside judges- Palm Springs Photo Festival Director Jeff Dunas, Lark Photography Books Editorial Director Marti Saltzman, and photographer/teacher Eddie Soloway-a lot of time and effort to pick the best images you sent us. In the gallery attached you'll find the winning images in each category, some very honorable mentions, and our Grand Prize winner.
