The winners of The Smithsonian's 2012 Annual Photography Contest include this image capturing the "spokesman" for Fruit of the Loom taking a break during his own photo shoot. "I liked the very American and friendly image of the Apple Guy juxtaposed against a vast desert, creating the allusion of a stop on a long journey," says photographer Ron Henderson, from Dallas.
More winning entries can be found on the website, where you can also vote for your favorite from this year as part of the Readers' Choice awards. The website also gives the details of the 2013 contest, which is now open. This year, there is a special category for photos from mobile devices.
