We had a tremendous response to our essay contest and want to thank everyone who took the time to send us their essay!
All finalists will see their entries published here on the pages of Field Photographer now through the 28th, with the final selection and winner announced February 28th! Both Andrew Tonn and myself are going over all entries and selecting our favorites then comparing notes. As a bonus a special selection will be made by Gary Crickmore proprietor of World of photography in Columbus Ohio.
The final selection will be comprised of both 1st and 2nd place winners, with the special selection being announced on March 10th. We received a number of excellent entries and none of you made the choice easy on us. We want to thank all of you for making our first essay contest a success and we hope you enjoyed the work.
Be sure to check back tomorrow for the first published essay! FP
NOTE: For those who sent their essay already formatted, we have done our best to maintain that format, only minor adjustments will be made for publishing. There were a few minor issues with some entries, if you are among those we need to contact, you will be contacted in the next week with hopes of resolving those issues. – Jef
