National Geographic entered Instagram history as the first brand to reach 100 million subscribers (almost the same numbers as Kim Kardashian).

To celebrate in their style, they opened a photo contest on a photo-sharing platform

In the 24-hour competition window, more than 94,000 photos were received in the magazine ! Editors and photographers from National Geographic reviewed the applications and narrowed them to the top 10 most amazing photos , and then allowed their subscribers to vote for who would be the main winner.


Below you can see a photo of the winner of the competition, the best finalists and other great pictures that did not win, but still stun anyone!
