Every year I enter photos into the Shoot & Share contest, sponsored by…you got it, Shoot & Share. It’s a contest that receives entries from all over the world & had more than 80 million votes cast just this year!! Crazy, right!? It’s a bracket based system with 25 categories that narrows down through 12 rounds, ultimately picking a grand prize winner. They also have places 1-20, Top 100 awards, Finalists, Top 10%, Top 20%, and Top 30% awards. This year, there were 413,000 photos entered ????!! Can you even imagine!?

I *love* voting during the contest…it is completely addicting & entire families get in on it!! You pick your favorite photo out of 4 & I’ve definitely gone an hour straight voting. This year, I had 2 finalist entries, 4 Top 10%, 2 Top 20%, and 7 Top 30%!! I was shocked when I saw my results since I only ever saw a handful of my images during the entire process!!
