In early 2020 we hosted the "Beyond the Frame" photo contest, where we asked the @NatGeoYourShot Instagram community to share what inspires them and gets them out every day to shoot. The winners won a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go on-location with a Nat Geo photographer and shoot on the new Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G.
The contest winners traveled to Wyoming and Alaska to learn from National Geographic photographers and Samsung TeamGalaxy creators on how to shoot incredible imagery on a revolutionary camera. Watch their stories below.

"Chasing flash flood waterfalls in Utah's Zion country can take weeks, months, or years of waiting for the right storms to hit. You have to be ready for these rare, powerful, fleeting moments. Capturing and experiencing these events is truly an honor."

I looked to the right and saw something move across the dusty road. All of a sudden more peeps came from the left, and out of the tall grass came the babies. Frozen in time, I nearly dropped my lens. As the mom got closer, the young cubs tackled her to the ground. It was dinnertime, and the cubs deserved to eat after a long day waiting in silence. Sometimes the best moments are unexpected."
