A huge congratulations to all who entered the The Gratitude Photo Contest, hosted by Nations Photo Lab and myself. We have named our photography contest winners!! We were pretty blown away by the scope and QUALITY of the entries. Within the short open dates of the contest, there were about 6,300 photographs entered and, maybe even more remarkable, 289,000 people voted on them. It certainly was not easy to narrow the photography contest finalists down, but we managed to get our top four winners. The theme, again, was to enter a photograph that shows something you are grateful for, without using any description or words to convey what you meant. So, without adieu, a big CONGRATS to the following Gratitude Photo Contest winners: 1st Place, “Arlington in the Fall” by LindbloomPhoto Runner Up 1: “Shasta Camping” by justinritucci Runner Up 2: “Remember to Breathe” by Crayok Runner Up 3: “Sunset in Valensole” by paolobubu And the People’s Choice Award: “Dedicated” by adamsb5 Winners, please email Allie at Nations Photo Lab to redeem your lovely prizes, which include generous gift cards from Nations Photo Lab, my Posing Playbook…for Kids Who Don’t Do Posing, a feature on the NPL Newsletter, and all kinds of winning image love. As I’d mentioned, we so enjoyed seeing all the remarkable photographs that were entered into this contest – there will be another photography contest coming up again soon.
