Photo Contest Shoot and Share Baby newborn photography black and white hands

2017 Shoot & Share Photo Contest Results are in!

The Photo Contest is over and I am thrilled with the results!

Every year a company called Shoot & Share puts on a Photo Contest. It’s seriously the largest and most addicting photo contest for photographers from all around the world to enter their work to. Contestants can enter up to 50 images into 25 different categories. Voting lasts over a few weeks and is so very addicting. Images and categories are randomly populated and sometimes you never see the same image more than once. Ultimately, the image with the most votes in each category and overall wins a prize whether monetary or tangible.

This year there were a total of 332,768 submitted images from all over the world! 5 images of mine made it to the TOP 30% and 2 images of mine made it to the TOP 20% – of 332,768 images – WOW! While I had a goal of making it to the top 10% category and high hopes of being a finalist, I just keep telling myself it will happen in 2018. Let’s do this!!!

While similar to the other image that placed, I just had to submit this one to the contest as I could not decide between the two. Still beautiful in every way.
