The results from the much awaited 2017 Shoot & Share contest are in!! If you're not familiar with it - that's ok. Unless you're a photographer you wouldn't have much reason to pay attention. But for those of us who take photos, the annual Shoot & Share contest is quickly gaining popularity and recognition for being one of the most fun and unbiased photo contests in the world.
Here are a few facts from last year's Contest that just might blow your mind. In 2016, 74,000 PEOPLE from 129 different countries submitted over 225,000 PHOTOS to the contest!!!! These photos were then voted on over 3 million times by actual people, not just a panel of judges. No names are included in the voting process so it becomes a level playing field for every entry. With 25 different categories, each photo competes within its category for popularity with voters. This is truly one of the most unique and fun parts of the contest as four images unfold across your screen at a time and you can choose your favourite one - its actually rather addicting!! Next year you should definitely check it out!! You just might be inspired in ways you never expected :)
Out of more than 360,000 IMAGES submitted to this year's contest, we were completely thrilled to have ranked a Finalist Image along with two images in the Top 20%, and four images in the Top 30%!! In light of the stunning array of images submitted this year we are honoured to have these images recognized by the international community and can't wait to submit our most recent work for next year's contest!!
