Finalist in the Shoot & Share 2017 Photo Contest

I’ve been entering the Shoot & Share photo contest for the past 3 years. It’s just a fun, anonymous-voting (you vote for photos without knowing who shot them) contest that photographers from across the world enter. (I wrote about the details of the contest back in 2015, if you want to read more about it.)

Basically, in this contest, you can enter up to 50 photos across 25 categories. During the voting period, the photos are viewed randomly and anonymously, and people vote for their favourites. Pretty simple! Last year my photos made the top 10%, but this year I’m happy to announce that one of my photos was a FINALIST (made it through all 12 rounds of voting without being eliminated)! Other photos made the top 10%, 20% and 30% categories as well! This year 332,768 photos were entered into the contest!

Let’s look at what photos won!

Surprisingly enough, the image that placed as a Finalist was NOT from a wedding!

Voting Round: 12/12

The Shoot & Share contest started in 2015, and has gotten more submissions every year – as a result, the competition gets tougher every year as well. For those of you who like numbers, here are how many photos have been submitted to this contest since it began three years ago:
2015: 110,928
2016: 225,207 (more than double the photos entered the year before!)
2017: 332,768

So, needless to say, getting a photo as a Finalist is pretty exciting! (a “finalist” photo means your photo placed in the top 3.5%)

Thanks to everyone out there who voted for my photos! 😀
