2017 was my second year entering the annual Shoot and Share Contest. I throughly enjoy the Shoot and Share contest because it's unbiased and anonymous, (unless, of course, you've seen the photos before). I can send the link to friends and family because anyone can vote! And it gets pretty addicting.
Finalist badges are given to the Top 3.5% of the entire contest. That includes all the photos entered! Top 30%, 20%, and 10% are given for each category, such as engagements, portraits, family, etc.
This is an annual, world-wide photo contest. In 2017, 332,768 photos were submitted, and over 49 MILLION votes were cast by 104,378 people from 141 different countries! 25 of JayCee Photography's photos received badges in 2017.
