This is the 26th year for the contest and some photos look as if they were shot on the set of a sci-fi movie. Spontaneous moments, outdoor space and sense of place are the categories to choose from when searching through the archives of this year’s contestants. Enter here unless you live in Cuba, Iran, New Jersey, North Korea, Sudan or Syria. Not a typo, Dictatorships and New Jersey residents aren’t allowed to play.
