The Winning Photos of the Prestigious 2019 Nikon Photo Contest
Nikon has announced the winning photos of its prestigious Nikon Photo Contest for 2018-2019. This is the 50th year of the contest, which has become one of the world’s largest photography competitions.
The Grand Prize award was given to Spanish photographer Sara De Antonio Feu for her photo “Ayimpoka” (shown above). Here’s the story that accompanied the image:
Ayimpoka lives with her family in a little town in Bolgatanga (Ghana). Albinism has been a cause of discrimination and persecution during years, and murders have been committed against albino children because of the popular association with magic and witchcraft. At Ayimpoka’s house, everyone gives her love and protection and a local NGO provides her weekly care. That day, she was recovering from malaria and she had a lot of sunburns because she was in the sun all day.
The photo was selected from a record 97,369 entries submitted by roughly 33,000 photographers from 170 countries and regions around the globe.
Here are some of the other top photos in this year’s competition...

Halide: Our Contest Results - Halide
We’ve had an incredible amount of submissions to our contest! While we already got a steady stream of excellent photos tagged with #ShotWithHalide on Instagram and Twitter, the absolute deluge of stellar shots we got during the contest period was overwhelming!
It took us a bit of extra time to look through and select the winners, so pardon the delay. With that said, let’s get to our winners!
First place
The grand winner of the contest is Travis Ross. This photo captures everything that makes a great photo: emotion, movement, composition. In this absolute chaos, Travis used Halide to snap a photo worth framing.
That won him a fantastic Leica Q2 camera. It should be able to cover any cases in which an iPhone and Halide just doesn’t quite cut it!

The Search Is On For The Next National Geographic Photographer | Inside Mazda
National Geographic and Mazda kicked off a first-of-its-kind competition series to search for the next National Geographic photographer. This competition will challenge the ingenuity and creativity of National Geographic’s fans and community of visual storytellers to capture stories of inspiration and human potential.
Mazda launches this competition as part of its Power of Potential platform, which honors individuals making a difference, realizing their potential and ultimately inspiring others. Over the course of four weeks, the two brands are inviting aspiring photographers to submit their work in consideration for a contest rooted in storytelling.
“National Geographic is an organization rich with powerful storytellers, and for over 130 years we’ve connected audiences to worlds and cultures they’d otherwise never see,” said John Campbell, SVP of partnerships for National Geographic Partners. “With Mazda’s help, we’re empowering the next generation of visual storytellers to hone their craft.”
The series begins with a contest shared through the National Geographic Your Shot Instagram account.  The contest invites emerging photographers to tell their most unique, uplifting visual stories that make them ‘Feel Alive.’ From these submissions, National Geographic and Mazda will select three storytellers to compete in a series of challenges, where they’ll be sent on expeditions to capture stories leveraging Mazda’s brand values of challenger spirit, ingenuity, and passion for uplifting others. The photographers will be mentored by National Geographic photographer, David Guttenfelder, and Mazda Brand experts to refine their craft.

Nikon Small World microscopy contest: We’re all winners | Ars Technica
This year's Nikon Small World images are just as mind-blowing as the rest.
Covering the news means that most of what you do is new. While you may revisit a topic, it typically only happens after something about that topic has changed. Nevertheless, fall science coverage has a certain familiarity. First, there's the utter insanity of the Ig Nobel prizes, followed shortly by the mad rush to explain why people are being given actual Nobel Prizes before the news goes stale.
Somewhere after that, however, I get to experience one of my favorite tasks of the entire year: wading through dozens of absolutely spectacular images, trying to figure out which ones are most compelling. Yes, it's time again for the Nikon Small World microscopy contest.
As you'll see below, there are no bad images. But the best of them are both works of art and reminders of how limited our perspective on the world around us can be. Change the scale, change the wavelengths, or alter how things are prepared, and even familiar items like amino acids or a flower can be radically different from how we normally experience them.
