The Untamed Americas Photo Contest: Week One Photos

It’s been just over a week since we launched our Untamed Americas photo contest on Instagram and today we’re thrilled to share a few of the submissions so far.

A quick search of the #untamedamericas hashtag is all it takes to be reminded of the incredible landscapes, wildlife and natural beauty in our own backyards.  If these don’t have you itching to get out and explore, I don’t know what will.

Haven’t submitted your photo yet?  Go here for complete contest rules and prizes – then follow @natgeochannels and upload your photo to Instagram with the hashtag #untamedamericas.  Good luck!
