Bored Panda by Giedrė
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.
