Photigy's Valentine's Day Image Contest Winners!

Photigy’s Valentine’s Day Image Contest Winners!

Meet the photographers behind the winning images

Last month, Photigy hosted a Valentine’s Day-themed Image Contest sponsored in part by our friends at B&H Photo. The international contest, which ran from February 3-20, 2020, was open to all photographers ages 18 and older and inspired some wonderfully creative product images. Submissions were evaluated by Alex Koloskov and Artem Pissarevskiy based on creativity, technical execution, post-production, and composition.

You can catch the entire live critique and winners announcement here.

Photigy and B&H wish to congratulate our amazing winners and thank all of the many talented photographers who took part in the contest!

For those keeping score at home, you may have noticed that our Honorable Mention winner scored a premium course rather than the announced prize of a Photigy T-Shirt or Coffee Mug. This was as a result of a bit of confusion that took place during the live judging (Alexandre was announced as a second-place winner), so we wanted to honor the prize.
