My thumb is sore & achin', but I can't stop voting!
The 2016 Shoot & Share Photo Contest with 25 categories has been up all weekend. It is a amazing thing- inspirational and educational for photographers sure, but I honestly feel it is THE way to browse and be inspired for anyone in any part of wedding planning from actual couples to vendors! So sit back and be amazed, and Pin a favorite pose or detail to you Pinterest board too! I entered 50 Nashville Artistic Wedding Photos and Senior photos int o this years contest from my Anjeanette Illustration portfolio!
"The Photo Contest is a way to bring the community together and share what they love. The Photo Contest is completely free. You can enter up to 50 photos into 25 different categories. The photographer’s name is never displayed during voting so each photo is judged on its own merit. Every photo is given equal opportunity to be voted on. It is displayed the same number of times to the voters as any other, so every photo is in the running. The Shoot & Share Photo Contest is unique because it’s all about the photos. It’s not about one photographers’s popularity vs. another’s or the ability to rally social media for votes. It’s not about your financial ability to pay for more entries to flood the photo pool.And the best part… You choose the winners. You are the judge. Everyone gets to vote. When the contest stars, we show you a group of 4 photos and you choose your favorite of the bunch. We’ll keep displaying random groups of four photos from the same category for as long as you want. You can vote as many times as you want." Shoot & Share website
I was tickled to see a few of the photos I submitted in the contest- considering that approximately 225,207 images were submitted- yeah I am pretty happy! We won't know the final results for a while- but its really more about camaraderie and excitement :) So happy to be a part of a community like Shoot & Share!
Vote on mobile or desktop! And sorry, no I cannot give a direct link to my photos as a few parents have asked because there isn't one! the photos rotate out on an algorithm for merit and fairness, just go vote for fun and enjoy~
Last year I only submitted a few photos- this year I have seen an amazing growth in my work....so I am not gonna lie I got so excited this year when I saw my first image after the first cut of 21, 923 images that I DROPPED THE PHONE. No matter what happens with my images, I have been inspired, excited and re-energized to create amazing images for my clients!
