# a node glows
The winning photos in this year's National Geographic contest are pretty stunning
From Dead Sea mudbathers and jumping wildebeest to smartphone users and ‘glass fish’. All human (and animal) life is here.

THE WINNERS OF the 2014 National Geographic Photo Contest have been announced, and the final photographs are among the best we’ve ever seen.

The images were selected from over 9,200 submissions from both amateur and professional photographers hailing from 150 different countries.

Winners and honorable mention photographs were selected from three categories: nature, people, and places. They were chosen by an esteemed panel comprised of National Geographic photographers and other creative professionals.

Grand Prize winner Brian Yen will receive $10,000 and a trip to Washington, DC, for his image “A Node Glows in the Dark.”

Nat Geo shared the full list of images with us here.
