Presenting the 16 Winners of National Geographic’s 2012 International Photography Contest for Kids

National Geographic's 2012 International Photography Contest for KidsAn 11-year-old from London has taken the top prize in the National Geographic 2012 International Photography Contest for Kids. Isabella Barbaro’s rainy-day image, “Dancing in Water,” beat out more than 13,5000 other images from kids around the world to earn her a 5-day, 4-night trip to Washington, D.C.

Melina Bellows, International Photography Contest for Kids judge and National Geographic’s executive vice president and chief creative officer for Books, Kids and Family. “The quality of the photography shows how incredibly perceptive kids are about the world around them. It was really challenging to pick just one overall winner.”

Other winners include young photographers from countries such as Indonesia and Slovenia. There was also a U.S.-version of the contest. The grand-prize-winning image as well as the images of the U.S. winners and second-place contestants will be published in the May 2013 issue of National Geographic Kids magazine.
