We launched the Photographer Of The Year competition this 2014. POTY is a year-long series of contests and challenges which awards points to participants, with all those points adding up for a final tally to determine who did best. (For info about the scoring system and more about POTY, click HERE.) It's not easy. A total of 24 contests, dozens of challengers with each aiming to win. In the end, only one winner will emerge victorious.
So who is Focus Bulacan's Photographer Of The Year for 2014? Watch the video below.
Winning a total of 7 contests in 2014 and placing second in 6 others, thus amassing a total of 215 points, 60 more than the closest challenger, JAY SALVADOR is Focus Bulacan's Photographer Of The Year. Congratulations!!! Jay gets a crystal trophy (that you see on the video) plus he gets a really nice reward :
Congratulations are also in order for those who finished in the Top 10 :
Only the winner gets a prize, though. But who knows, maybe next year thru the generosity of sponsors, the second and third placers could also get prizes. For now, it's CHEERS for everyone who strived to improve and excel - which was the purpose of our competition after all.
CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who dared. There's a quote by American author Jack Campbell that comes to mind : "You can't win unless you try to win. But you can lose by trying not to lose." So kudos to the participants who had the guts to join the contests and take on the challenges.
And to our Photographer Of The Year Jay Salvador... the grandest CONGRATULATIONS of all. :)
POTY 2014 hereby ends. POTY 2015 shall soon begin.
Competition is fun
At Focus Bulacan, we strive to improve every member's photography skills. One way to do this is to constantly challenge each other with photo contests. All competition is posted here, for voting and for announcement of results. Good luck!
