Back in May, we challenged you to capture what soccer means to you and send us your best, most blistering and brilliant shots of the beautiful game.
What better way to get in the mood for the summer’s soccer extravaganza than that, we thought, and we’ve been overjoyed to notice that you seem to agree! At least judging by the flood of absolutely fabulous entries we’ve received so far… You’ve submitted colourful, atmospheric, quirky and simply blinding photos, which have quite literally taken our breath away.
You still have nine long days to get your shots perfectly on target, so check out this showcase of stunning entries for inspiration.
Take your shot on goal
Now that you’ve checked out the competition, don’t just watch from the sidelines! It might actually be best to nail that master shot before Thursday… if you’re as fanatic about soccer as us, you might be find yourself glued to your television set by the end of the week! On the other hand, you might find some fantastic opportunities to capture emotions in your very own living room…
Whatever the subject of your final soccer shots, we look forward to seeing them. Remember, in return, you could win a trip of a lifetime to Victoria Falls with National Geographic Photographer Stephen Alvarez. You know the score: take your soccer inspired photo or video on any device you wish, upload it to the competition website and share it with the hashtag #LumiaxNatGeo. May the sharpest shooter win!
