This does not mean upload an old photo you shot with a real camera, because I think we all know that images like that end up with a slight, but noticeable, pixelation. Instead, this is a chance to show off what you can do on your mobile, truly out in nature (until you return to WiFi to post the photo). It can be from your travels or your own backyard, so long as it's submitted by June 18.
How to enter:
· Follow @natgeochannels on Instagram (and @jaunted, for good measure, but not required)
· Upload your original, previously unpublished photo of what "Untamed Americas" means to you.
· Only submit one photo, and add the #UntamedAmerica tag.
· Do so before June 18, 2012.
· Check back for weekly updates on the contest (like this one), and special features to get you psyched for the premiere of "Untamed Americas" on June 10 & 11.
What you'll win:
A National Geographic camera bag, stuffed full with a Nikon D3100 SLR Digital Camera with 18-55mm VR & 55-200mm VR Lenses & basic kit; a subscription to National Geographic Magazine; one Glif stand for better iPhoneography; one Untamed Americas Kit including a National Geographic Jacket, Hat, Water Bottle, Binoculars and complete DVD of the series; and one limited edition signed print by Cole Rise.
