This is my second year entering the "Shoot & Share" photo contest. This a free, world wide photo contest - anyone can enter and anyone can vote. There was 583,150 photos submitted to 25 different categories with over 90 MILLION votes submitted from 140+ different countries. It is quite the contest.
This year I received 5 different awards. I had two photos place is the top 20%, two photos place in the top 10% and one photo placed as a finalist (meaning it made it through all twelve rounds of voting). What does all of this mean? Nothing really, but I am still really proud of my work and excited that other people seem to like it as well.
The photo that placed as a finalist is this adorable picture of Cooper. also known as Captain America.
I submitted it to the "kids" category. There were 52,642 photos submitted to this category. This photo placed 398/52642! I'm not sure if it is the picture itself that did well, or Cooper (I mean he is incredibly adorable).
Here are all of the images that placed in the contest this year.
I've truly enjoyed submitting photos to the Shoot & Share contest these past two years and I am looking forward to it already for the coming year.
