I tell you what, the hardest thing I have had to do in my life - who would've known that picking the best photo was so hard? I can tell you right now, it fkn sucks. We are so lucky to have received images from 73 individual photographers, with over 1500 photos entered and we have found four winners. How you ask? Good question.
The criteria. Make us want to look at it forever. Congratulations, you succeed. However not with ease. We deliberated for over 4 days to choose the winners of all categories and it wasn't easy, so we would like to congratulate all entrants and thank you all for giving back to our community - we will be in touch as to how we can further help you out.
Here are the winners...
SURF WINNER - Nick Green @nickgreenphoto
TRAVEL WINNER - Rick Avena @dick_valentine
LIFESTYLE WINNER - Marcus Paladino @marcuspaladino
PEOPLE WINNER - Valerie Tobin @vmtphoto
What a hectic inaugural photo comp. We are stoked to receive such amazing imagery and want to thank all who entered and the time spent contributing to the SV community.
Over time we will be sending out our thanks to all entrants and don't give up on the dream.
PEOPLE WILL STARE, MAKE IT WORTH THEIR WHILE.
