Always good to push ourselves and take on new challenges, such as our theme Double Exposure. It may have been a first time for some of the participants to do the technique - or understand the concept what a "double exposure" photograph is really about - but the most important thing is to try. And try, they did. Choose, the voters did. And now here's our Top 3 for Double Exposure...
3rd Place : 27 points (13 votes) / Entry 10 / JER SANDEL
2nd Place : 35 points (16 votes) / Entry 6 / GILBERT MACAPAGAL
1st Place : 37 points (14 votes) / Entry 13 / MARK ANTHONY DE LEON
Congratulations, Mark Anthony! 1st Place gets an extra 10 points, 2nd Place gets 7, 3rd Place gets 5, 4th Place (undisclosed) gets 3, and 5th Place (also undisclosed) gets 2 points for the 2016 Photographer Of The Year competition. Participants automatically get 3 points for submitting entries.
