For the past three years I’ve entered fifty images into an international photography competition, the Shoot & Share Photo Contest. My first year (and official first year of being in business) of entering the contest, I had a photograph win 19th place out of about 5,300 entries in the “Reception” category. It was one of my all-time favorite sparkler exit photos. Beginners luck I guess! Last year I had a few finalist images, but sadly nothing placed in the Top 20.
But to my surprise, this has been my most awarded year yet! Finally made it back into the Top 20 for a category with numerous other images placing well. Besides my Top 20 accolade, eight images placed in the Top 10%, twelve images in the Top 20%, and nine images in the Top 30%. Over half of the images I entered this year were top placers in the contest! Blown away and goes to show that all the hard work I’ve put in to learning, experimenting and growing over these past few years has elevated my work to a new level. This blog showcases some of my winning images, starting with my lower placing images and ending with the big winner! Scroll through to see where my top photos placed!
There ya have it! My top placing images from the 2018 images I entered into this year’s International Shoot & Share Contest. Looking forward to seeing how my 2019 images place in next year’s contest! Do you have a favorite? Let me know in the comments!
