Voting for our Studio Macro contest was shorter than usual (5 days compared to the usual 1 week), but the result was so conclusive, even if we extended the voting for a month, the same photo would still win.
Our winning photo ALMOST made history of being the first entry to be voted unanimously by the voters. It got mentioned in 21 out of the 22 votes cast for this contest... meaning almost everyone did. The lone dissenter? The owner of the winning photo, since we have a rule that we couldn't vote for our own entry (he could have made history if he chose not to vote, but that would be selfish). Of the 21 votes for the winning photo, 18 was for first place. DOMINATION.
Anyway, let's reveal the Top 3...
3rd Place : 16 points (11 votes) / Entry 6 / NOEL CRISOSTOMO
(Entry 6 actually tied with Entry 4 with 16 points, but got more votes, 11 to 8)
2nd Place : 26 points (11 votes) / Entry 7 / CHI LOPEZ
1st Place : 63 points (21 votes) / Entry 2 / JAY SALVADOR
Congratulations to the runaway winner! Hopefully we see a better fight next time. :)
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 Photographer Of The Year competition. Participants automatically get 3 points for submitting entries.
