This was, as I suspected it would be much harder than it was last year to choose a winner.
Firstly thank you to everyone that entered the contest. There were so many creative and well-produced photos. When choosing the photo a few things were taken into consideration. I’ve never considered myself an expert on the technical aspects of photography. I just know what I like and what I don’t like. I also had to consider how the photo would work as a Cover for the blog posts with a text overlay etc.
I’m delighted and excited to announce the winner of the Face of Calendar Guys 2021 Photo contest is…………
Panda’s photo/cover will be used from 1st January 2021 in all Calendar Guys posts on the blog and he also wins L$10,000 cash.
I’d also like to mention a few notable mentions. These are the photos that really came down to the last crunch of choices.
Levi Megadon – I loved the emotion in this shot.
Kn0ck 0ut – long time admirer of the work that he puts into the group each month and the tone and composition on this one really caught my eye
Roman Godde – There are always a few shots of Roman’s that make the selection each month and it’s always a challenge to choose which ones to use. The framing of this would really have worked and I loved that he put thought into that.
Congratulations to Panda and thank you again to all those that took the time to take photographs and enter the competition. I look forward to seeing all of your photos added to the group in the coming 12 months. Happy New Year!
