Kids with Cameras



Kids Who Amazed the World and Won the National Geographic’s Photography Contest for Kids

National Geographic has just announced the winners of its annual International Photo Contest for Kids, an event reserved for camera-holders between 6 and 14. If you're expecting to see an amateur, off-centre gallery of trees and houses, you're in for a shock. These kids are seriously creative, and the shots they captured are worthy of magazine covers. The photos have a unique and peaceful innocence about them that children quite possibly understand best.

The international 1st place winner, Dewi Baggerman from the Netherlands, is headed to Washington, D.C. for a tour of National Geographic headquarters. You can see her entry and those of her 13 fellow winners below.
