It’s that time of year again! The SvenStudios photo of the year contest is now open for all who would like to vote! All the previous year’s brides that SvenStudios has covered their wedding at were eligible to submit their favourite photo from their day. These photos aren’t necessarily the same photos I personally would have chosen as the best photo taken on their respective days, but these represent their own favourites for whatever reason, be they sentimental, amusing, or they just feel it’s look good in a frame 🙂 I have put together a bit of a slideshow of my own personal favourites from the year here if you’re interested.

This year we have 13 entries, and each one has the chance of winning a framed print of their image worth up to $500! The winning image will be the image with the most votes by the close of the contest at midnight of February 28th.

Simply for voting you will go into the draw to win $100 cash which will be randomly drawn after the competition closes.

In order to cut down on duplicate votes this year, before voting on your favourite image you will need to share your choice via Facebook. If however you do not have a Facebook account, please feel free to send me an email. Each individual is entitled to a single vote throughout the course of the contest, and all votes are recorded and moderated via anti-cheat algorithms.

I can’t wait to see which is the winning entry for the 2016 photo of the year contest is as I feel as though I have progressed leaps and bounds as a wedding photographer throughout 2016 and running a contest like this only helps me take better, more cherished photos for my future brides as I gain an insight into what the public like best!

To see the results of the 2015 photo of the year contest, feel free to travel back in time here.
