We're not going to prolong the wait of the participants, for sure they've been anxiously wanting to know which entries made it to the top. Thanks to everyone who voted most especially to guest judge sir Edwin Tuyay. Without the voters, there would be no winners!
Before we reveal the winners (or before you scroll down), we'd like to clarify the situation : there were two Calumpit photowalks for the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk. Both are organized by Focus Bulacan. For Photowalk 1, a total of 18 entries were correctly emailed then uploaded to ViewBug, and put to a vote here. For Photowalk 2, only 2 (yes, TWO) entries made it (and four disqualified via incorrect upload). For Photowalk 2, we didn't put the entries to a public vote and instead asked guest judge Edwin Tuyay to just pick which of the two is the better photo. It was an adjustment made on-the-fly as we were also surprised (and disappointed) that only two entries were submitted to ViewBug for Walk 2.
Here are the top photos :
Winner : JAY SEBASTIAN
WALK 1 TOP 3
3rd Place : 23 points (9 votes) / Entry 15 / SHERWIN TOMAS
