Shoot and Share Contest Results!

I can’t believe it’s the beginning of July and I am just now finding the time to blog the results from the Shoot and Share Contest! This year feels like it is flying by and I am so blessed by all the amazing families I’ve gotten to work with. Mid year I’ve already met or exceeded every goal I’ve set for myself, and the Shoot and Share contest was the perfect start to this amazing year. 

So what is the Shoot and Share Contest? Well I’m glad you asked! It is, hands down, one of the most fun photography competitions out there. Photographers from all over the world submit their work and anyone can vote, photographers or non photographers alike. It’s completely anonymous which makes it one of the most unbiased competitions. Four pictures flash on the screen and you click on the one you like the most. That’s it! I’ve gotten sucked into it the last couple of years voting for hours on end, fascinated by the amazing pictures and the level of skill and talent throughout the competition. This year I decided would be *the year* I was going to enter. I had no expectations, I just wanted to see what would happen and I couldn’t be happier with my results for my first year.

So let’s look at the stats!

412,379 photos were submitted from photographers all over the world
And over 81 Million Votes were cast

From those I had:

1 Finalist in the Kids Category (that is the top 3%!!!)
4 More in the Top 10% across multiple categories
9 More in the Top 20% across multiple categories
7 More in the Top 30% across multiple categories

Here is the image that placed as a finalist. It ranked 230 out of 35,570 pictures in that category!

Here is a fun little video created for me from all my contest entries, as well as more detailed pictures of my results. 

How fun is that?! I am so excited to see what this year will bring and thank each and every one of you for being a part of my journey!
