"National Geographic"


Dublin, CA, US
          

I watched a public television program on National Geographic's best photos for 2010 closen by NG's photo editors. The average was about 15,000 photos. One editor commented that a photographer submitted 45,000 photos to him and that he, "...just started crying!" Great photos, btw! The special prompted some questions:

1) What sorting, editing, and/or post-procesing software does NG use?

2) Which format do the photographers shoot with, e.g., jpeg or raw, and which format do they use for their submittal, e.g., jpeg, raw, or tiff?

Watch it if you can; the photographers' advice is excellent.

These are the rules for the 2011 Photo Contest at National Geo:

http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/photo-contest/rules/

I would think these requirements would closely represent how their in-house/contractor photographers would submit their work as well. I would also think National Geo would depend on the photographers, whether in house or contractor, to process their own work, since the photographer would know how the image should look. But I'm just guessing here.

For those of us, who don´t have the opportunity to watch this, would you mind to give a brief summary?
