Our Judges

Danielle Da Silva from Photographers Without Borders, and Davina Kudish from PHAITO and Image Salon, will be joining our owner, Blair deLaubenfels, to choose the final 30 photos and grand prizes winners. We'll be looking for out of the box ideas, wonderful moments, and gorgeous portraits. Of course; composition, lighting, exposure, and processing will all play a role when it comes to getting in our winner's circle, and if you make us cry or laugh out loud, or simply take our breath away, no doubt your photo will rise to the top.
