Every year shoot and share puts on one of the biggest photography contests around. Photographers from all over the submit their best photos from the year into a contest like any other. What makes this contest different? Instead of a panel of judges selecting the winners the photos are then put out for the photographers, or anyone else who wants to to judge. Voters who visit the voting site are shown 4 random images from one of the 25 categories, they cannot see the photographers name or any other information so the idea is that they are voting on the images only.
This years contest included 412,379 images from photographers in almost 150 countries. To even have your photos voted for among thousands of the best photographers and best images from around the world is truly an honor! This year I was surprised and grateful to have 6 of my images place in the top 30% or higher of all images entered. A huge thank you to anyone who voted for any of my images, I can’t wait for next years contest!!!
I honestly debated sharing my top ranking image, I truly believe that the fact that this image made it so high in the contest speaks more about the beauty and strength of the mama pictured than my skill as a photographer. When I chose the images to enter, I entered all of my favorites from the year. This image I think will always be a favorite of mine because it reminds me why I do what I do. I chose to share it in the contest to inspire and remind other photographers how important our job really it. Read a little more about this beautiful mama and her family here.
