The winner has been determined. Thank you all for voting! To our guest judges, Shutterpanda's Mare Collantes and Karen dela Fuente, thanks for joining us! :)
After a week of casting choices, a clear-cut winner jumped over the others and rose to YOLO glory. Our winning entry set a record of sorts by totaling 88 points (the highest in our contests so far) and winning by a margin of 48 points (the biggest so far).
Without further ado, here are our Top 3 :
3rd Place : 20 points (13 votes) / Entry 2 / CHAEL SANTOS
2nd Place : 40 points (20 votes) / Entry 17 / MELBOURNE GALVEZ
1st Place : 88 points (31 votes) / Entry 12 / LHEO HALILI
Fact : Entry 12 was chosen by all voters except one... the contest winner himself (because you can't vote for your own photo), including 24 votes for first place. A dominant result that leaves no doubt which YOLO photo was the best. CONGRATULATIONS, LHEO HALILI!!!
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.
Till the next one! Keep on shooting! :)
