I don’t enter a lot of photo contests, but there’s one that I’ve been submitting a few photos to each year called Shoot & Share. It’s really cool because it’s a contest for photographers all over the world to submit their work and have their photos voted on by fellow photographers. Out of 1.1 million submitted photos, it was so awesome to see that some of my photos had placed high in their categories! One of my images submitted for senior photography had placed in the top 100 images out of almost 40,000 others! How cool is that?!
It’s an honor to have my photos recognized, and among so many amazing photographers across the globe! Two of my other photos also placed as finalists in their categories, finishing 212th and 301st. A bunch of other photos placed in the top 10%, 20%, and 30% in their respective categories.
It’s fun to look through the other work submitted to the contest, there were so many beautiful images! And now I have a great resource to turn to if I ever need some photo inspiration, and how cool that I can help to be that inspiration to others. To get recognition like this is really awesome and it energizes me to get out there and keep capturing award-winning moments!
