I'm excited to share my results from the 2018 Shoot & Share contest! It was my first year submitting photos to a contest of any kind, so was quite surprised at having 4 photos end up as finalists! There were over 412,379 photos submitted among 50 different categories and over 75 Million votes cast. Of those photos, 50 of them were mine divided between the categories:
Babies & Toddlers
Birth & Newborn
Teens & Seniors
Life Style/Family Documentary
A group of 4 photos out of the same category would be displayed at a time for voting, and a new set of 4 photos would be shown each time from the different categories. During this voting process, nobody knew who took the photos. It was also a bit addicting as I kept hoping to see one of my own photos pop up; and when they did, I took screenshots.
