The Results Are In: 2019 Shoot & Share Contest
It’s that time of year again: revealing my personal standings in the annual Shoot & Share Photography Contest.
If you recall, I did really (really!) well in 2018. Last year was my first time entering, so it came as quite a shock that my images performed as well as they did: a whopping twenty-one of my images placing in the top 30% and higher — one of my images even took seventh place, which may not sound like much, but 7th place out of tens of thousands of images, from around the globe, is pretty spectacular, especially for a newbie.
But this year I’m afraid I didn’t fare as well: thirteen of my images placed in the top 30% or higher. I shouldn’t be bummed, but I admit I am. I went “All In”, as I did last year, and still only a third of my images landed in those coveted spots. Because I’m a Type A person, and the sort of artist who likes to compete with herself, pushing and pushing to better myself versus the artist I was last year … it stings to not have done as well as the year before
It gives me all the more reason to push even harder for 2020!
And thirteen images from the 2019 Shoot & Share Contest landed in the top 30% or higher ain’t bad. I’ll take it.
So without further ado, here are my top ranking images from the 2019 Shoot & Share Photography Contest, noting the round each image made it to (out of twelve rounds) and individual placement in their respective categories:
And my highest placing image in the 2019 Shoot & Share Photography Contest, one of my personal favorites from a Fine Art Storytelling Collective done last year, “Dorothy in Oz”:
