Thank you to each and every participant this year! Our competition was a huge success and many people, all across the world, witnessed the beauty of birth photography through your images.
Our Judge panel had a very difficult job in narrowing down the winners this year! Winners were chosen on a point system and judged on technicality, emotionality and composition. While we had clear 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners, our Honorable Mention spot had 3 photos receive the exact same number of points by the judge panel. So, we will be awarding 3 Honorable Mentions this year.
Thank you to our Judges, they did a wonderful job and we are appreciative of their time and efforts! And, of course, thank you to each and every person who took the time to vote for the People’s Choice Award!
Congratulations to all the winners!
