Congratulations to all of our students!

Judging your photos is never easy. This year, we had a stacked competition, making it the most difficult one to judge yet. We look forward to seeing more of your beautiful work throughout the year!

How did judging work?

In the first round, the judges selected the top 75 photos out of the 850+ submitted. Then, the judges made a list of their top 10 photos, and ranked them first through tenth. Each ranking was given a certain amount of points, more heavily weighted to photos ranked higher. We added all of the points for the photos, and the photos with the most points one.
