Shoot & Share Results | Finalists, Top 10%, Top 20%, Top 30% Entries - Part I | Fresh Pine Photography

A few months ago, I entered a few pieces of my work into a huge, global photography contest. (there were like 600K+ images entered from artists all over the world) There were twelve rounds of voting that eventually narrowed the images down to the top 1% (finalists). I cannot even believe two of my images made it through to the end and were finalists!! 22/50 of my entered images finished in the top 30% or better, which is super exciting and a huge surprise. This was the very first contest I've ever entered my work in. 

 

 I entered my images into a few different categories - the ones above were in the Families, Share Joy, Babies & Toddlers, Passion Portraits, Lifestyle/Documentary, and Maternity categories. There was some TOUGH competition... check out the total numbers of images entered into each of those and how well my best entries finished!

 

 

 

The 'Families' category had 41,257 images entered.
