20 spectacular images from National Geographic's photo contest

National Geographic's 2011 photo contest is currently underway, which means you can submit your very best pics and maybe win $10,000 plus a trip to National Geographic headquarters to participate in their annual National Geographic Photography Seminar. Good luck, though, because you're up against some serious competition.

Below, check out wallpaper-sized versions of our favorite pics, and there's a couple hundred more (only slightly less) incredible pics for you to browse over at NatGeo.
