Last year we opened up a contest to pick up to 100 top endorsed pros to be showcased through Westcott. I have a funny story to share on how this contest got started.
At PhotoShop World in Orlando last year I met a young photographer who just had a charisma about him that was amazing. I spent some time talking with him at our booth and saw he had a portfolio and asked to view it. I was completely blown away by his images and creativity. Why weren’t these images blown up on a billboard somewhere? That is when I knew we needed to create something in order to showcase the work of individuals such as him. His name is Michael Green by the way and in our Westcott catalog this year. Needless to say I sought him out after the show and those of you with a Westcott catalog can concur his work is amazing. I got the pleasure of seeing him again at the show this year while he said “I can’t believe I’m on the same page as Scott Kelby!” Way to go Michael, you deserve it.
The entries we received were overwhelming and took us much longer than expected to get through them all. However, we do have a final list of winners:
Eric Prine (attic fire)
Jeffrey & Julia Woods
Juan Camillo Ramirez Carvajal
Parker J Pfister
Rick and Deb Ferro
For everyone that can count, we are not up to 100 so keep those entries coming in. We are building a new website now that will include an interactive gallery featuring the work of these winners that will launch this summer. We truly want this area to be a source of inspiration and want to thank everyone who entered. Keep up the great work and keep entering!
