2019 Photo Contest Results!

This is my second year entering the worlds largest photography contest and I’m so excited to share the results! Shoot and Share is a completely free and fair photo contest because anyone can enter and everyone is welcome to vote! They spend the month of January collecting submissions which anyone can enter up to 50 photos. Then in the month of February, the voting begins! It’s SO much fun too! They display four photos all from the same category and you pick your favorite. It’s highly addicting and with over 1.1 million photos there really is no end to the voting! After ten rounds of voting by over 100,000 people, the following photos placed in the contest! I entered 50 photos and to have over half of them place was huge!

Last year I received one finalist, 2 top 10%, 4 top 20% and 8 top 30% so to increase in the number of photos that placed was such an accomplishment for me! Below I’ve included all of the photos that placed in this years contest! Choosing only 50 photos to enter was SO challenging and is only a VERY small fraction of the photos I captured last year. There is so many additional amazing shots that I wish I could have entered!

I want to give a special thank you to everyone who was on the other side of my lens last year! Helping people capture their life is what I’m all about so to each and everyone of you, thank you!! If you find yourself in any of the photos, know you deserve the award just as much! I couldn’t have created that image without you! It’s because of you trusting me to capture your life that I get to create images like this which brings me SO much joy!
