In recent years, the contest has been held every other year.

More than 18,000 photographers from 153 countries submitted over 51,000 photos for the 2008-2009 contest. These numbers represent records for the largest number of entries by the most applicants from the most countries ever, making the Nikon Photo Contest International a truly international event.

Photos covering a broad range of subject matter from throughout the world are expected for both categories.
