Hurry! - You still have time! - The final deadline for entries to the 2016 National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year contest is November 4.

Photographers are welcome to submit entries into four separate categories—Landscape, Environmental Issues, Action, and Animal Portraits. "The four categories of this year’s contest will give photographers a chance to capture the complexity and beauty found in the world around us," said Sarah Polger, senior producer for National Geographic Travel and manager of National Geographic photo contests. "We anticipate compelling and revealing images."

The grand prize winner will enjoy a 10-day trip for two to the Galápagos with National Geographic Expeditions and also have the opportunity for two 15-minute portfolio reviews with National Geographic photo editors—a photographer's dream-come-true.

Interested photographers still have time to submit photos until November 4 at 12 p.m. EDT. There is a $15 entry fee per photo, with no limit to the number of submissions per photographer.
