Once again, this February I participated in the excruciatingly painful waiting game otherwise known as Shoot and Share. It's a completely anonymous photo contest where you submit photos and then the entire month of February, you vote on which photos you think are the best. You can submit in different categories and then within those categories, photos are compared in groups of four and you vote on which one is best.
It's all fun and games until you start to face the fact that for almost two months you don't know how your photos did AT ALL.
It's rough guys. But I survived, and even did better than I did last year despite the fact that I submitted less photos (not on purpose, thought the deadline was later than it actually was, oops...).
The revelation was yesterday and I finally got to see the results!! It was a little Christmas in March.
Of the thirty eight photos I submitted, nineteen placed in the top thirty percent or above, and one was a finalist in the Share Joy Category! This was 2017 vs 2018 results.
Here are a spattering of my favorites that won. Many of these pictures were taken in Windsor, Ft. Collins, and Denver, Colorado. I was honored that so many of my photos made it that far and ALL the amazing photos I got to vote on gave me great inspiration for next year's contest. The waiting is always worth it in the end, I guess.
