Today is a fantastic day! We have been so busy, that we JUST had the chance to look at our results from the annual Shoot & Share Photo Contest! AND WE WERE FINALISTS – 4 TIMES! The Shoot & Share Photo Contest is the world’s only free & fair photo contest. Each photographer can enter up to 50 photos in 25 categories. Anyone (even non-professional photographers) can enter photos, and it’s totally free! Participants can view the photos randomly and vote for their favorites. No one knows who took the photos, but everyone votes for the winners. The photos with the most votes win!
This contest is unique because it’s all about the photos! It’s not about one photographers’s popularity vs. another’s or the ability to rally social media for votes. It’s not about your financial ability to pay for more entries to flood the photo pool. The contest is a way to bring the community together and share what they love. It allows photographers from all over the world to share their work, and inspire others. The photographer’s name is never displayed during voting so each photo is judged on its own. Every photo is given equal opportunity to be voted on and it is displayed the same number of times to the voters as any other, so every photo is in the running.
All 25 categories had 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, along with an overall Grand Prize Winner for the contest. Last year, there were over $1,200,000 in free memberships, software, credit, gifts, workshops, and more! We had photos rank as finalists, the top 10% of all images entered in their category, the top 20% and the top 30%! Our rankings were as followed :
Finalist | 4
Top 10% | 4
Top 20% | 12
Top 30% | 6
