Smithsonian Magazine is calling for entries to its 19th Annual Photo Contest, open to all photographers who are 18 years old or older.

Award-winning photographs can range from a captivating portrait of a family member to a moon-drenched landscape to movement captured at just the right time. Smithsonian is looking for the best of the best.

Eight prizes will be awarded in spring 2022, including a Grand Prize of $2,500, six category prizes of $500 each and a Reader’s Choice award of $500.

The following six contest categories are drawn from subjects of special interest to Smithsonian magazine:

Mobile: Any photograph taken with a mobile device (phone or tablet).
