The results are in and Elegant Images is extremely proud to announce that we are among this year’s winners of the Shoot & Share photo contest!
With over 330,000+ photo submissions Shane’s picture of Moraine Lake, in Banff National Park placed 19th (see above) in the Wanderlust category. At the same time, three of his other photo entries were selected as finalist, which means those pictures also made it all the way to the end.
Out of the 50 breathtaking images Shane submitted, a number of them landed in the top 10%, 20% and 30% of all photos submitted. It is an incredible honor to be named on such an illustrious list, considering the fierce competition he faced in all categories.
The Shoot & Share photo contest is billed as “The World’s Fairest Photo Contest.” Competitors can enter up to 50 photos in 25 different categories; pitting their talent and skills against 75,000+ exhibitors in over 150 different countries. There is a whole host of prizes that can be won, ranging from free memberships, free software, workshops, even a cash prize or two.
This photo contest is unique in that each photo is displayed an equal number of times during the entire competition. The photographer’s name is never displayed, ensuring that each photo will be judged on its own merits. This method of blind judging helps level the playing field for all competitors, so that a well-known artist cannot rally support from his/ her current followers or via social media.
But the best part has to be that voting is open to everyone. Shane’s top images were selected by people just like you. Thanks to everyone that voted Shane will be receiving a Badge for his 19th place finish and the acknowledgement of a job well done.
We would like to congratulate this year’s winners, and give a hardy slap on the back to all the other participants. We know how hard it is to put yourself out there and compete on such a grand scale. Magnificent work everybody! We will see you all again next year!
