Shoot + Share Contest


This year I decided to enter into my very first photography contest... a little scary but exciting! The Shoot & Share Photo Contest is open to photographers all over the world. This year there were 11,351 photographers who entered 413,000 photos. Each could enter up to 50 photos in 25 categories, and anyone could view the photos randomly and vote for their favorites. I loved that this wasn't a popularity contest...you couldn't find out who the photographer behind the photo was until the contest ended. And also it wasn't until the month-long contest ended that we found out how we ranked. I was very pleased that I received several awards, from top 30% to top 10%! Check them out below!



Top 10% in the Babies and Toddlers category (2,349 out of 28,425 photos)


Top 20% in the Styled Wedding category (1,077 out of 6,998 photos)


Top 20% in the Styled Wedding category (1,241 out of 6,998 photos)


Top 20% in the Engagement & Couples category (7,185 out of 37,145 photos)


Top 20% in the Teens & Seniors category (5,490 out of 29,460 photos


Top 20% in the Kids category (5,503 out of 35,570 photos)


Top 20% in the Engagement & Couples category (10,175 out of 37,145 photos)

I had so much fun voting and being a part of this contest. I can't wait for next year!

And here's a cool video they put together of all of my photos submitted:
