Big Shoot 2018: Contest Winners

Scroll down to content

We kicked off November with Big Shoot 2018 at Devil’s Den State Park. It was a beautiful autumn weekend of camping, workshops, photowalks, free loaner gear, networking, and the main event – a photo contest with over $1500 in prizes. Participants were challenged to shoot and submit images taken during the Big Shoot weekend only in categories of Landscape, Macro, and Wildlife photography. We would like to thank our sponsors Nikon, Canon, Sony, and Fuji for leading the education and generously providing the latest and greatest gear for participants to try out! All of the photo contest submissions were gorgeous images, but the votes are in and it’s time to unveil the winners.
