Our friends over at Viewbug put on the largest Photofocus contest in history.  And the entries were fantastic.  The huge number of entries made it very tough for us as a jury to decide as we were all blown away with the level of talent in that pool.

“The winning selections are in! Thank you to all the photographers that shared their amazing entries in the biggest Viewbug Photofocus photo contest in history. The winner among the following finalists will be selected by the guest jury. The jury is comprised of a group of individuals that are the editors, publishers, authors and experts of Photofocus including Richard Harrington, Melissa Niu Nicole S. Young and more! A big thank you to Photofocus and all the amazing brands and photography services for providing the prizes for the contest and for their collaboration.”
