Once again, I would like to thanks ALL nominated photographers for being extremely BRAVE to participate in this competition. It takes REAL guts to allow one’s self to join a competition this transparent, to have your votes/results be shown to everyone.
All participating photographers should feel proud of themselves, to be nominated and have a huge part of the SL community vote for each of you in the finals is itself a testimony that all of you are loved and appreciated!
Personally, I was surprised at how many participated in the final votes as I wasn’t expecting this many due to this competition being at its first yr. So THANK YOU residents for giving this competition a chance and for whole-heartedly participating to choose YOUR photographer of the year! 😀
Finally, a big congrats to Pam Astonia for winning the Photographer of the year AWARD! Her trophy will be given to her during our awards ceremony in-world and limited tickets will be available to be purchased for those who would like to join us for this wonderful first award ceremony that will be held in December.
The lindens collected for the tickets will be used to fund the building of the ceremony site. However, we will only be allowed limited tickets to be sold as we care about the attendees experience and don’t want lag to gloom everyone’s experience. More info on how you can purchase tickets will be announced later this month so stay tuned 🙂
One last thing! Be sure to look out for our FASHION BLOGGER OF THE YEAR AWARD coming soon! We’ve pushed it earlier so the award ceremony can be held at the same time as the photographer of the year award.
