Our latest PHOTO-CONTEST has played out on the Photologo Facebook page and group on the first week of February! The response has been even greater than the last time. Hundreds of members of the Photologo community have shared their best shots and their love for photography with us and other artists. This time, we also launched a call for videos and it has been amazing to watch your enthusiasm telling how Photologo helped to build your identity and brand as photographers. Knowing that we built such a strong relationship among our community is a big reason for us to celebrate and say «thank you» to all of you!
Now, for this contest, we asked people to show us their best shot and we got landscapes, wildlife, portraits, candid shots, you name it…so many amazing photos! The first 10 entries won a free product (an Animated Photologo, or a copy of Photopolish, our watermarking tool) and the best 5 shots are featured in our «Artist spotlight» blog section and our Facebook page.
It’s always very difficult for our team to narrow it down to the Top 5. However, the wait is finally over and we can share with you the winners of this PHOTO-CONTEST!
Are you ready to get to know these five amazing photographers?
Artist: John Gartman
Title: Nicholas Canyon Beach
Artist’s comment: This picture was taken right after the fires and big rainfall in Malibu. It was unusual to be the only one on the beach on this beautiful evening. I captured this as I was leaving and the light started to change with my Canon 5Dm4.

Title: It’s up to us
Artist’s comment: The Zoos are doing a better job than they have in the past taking care of the animals. The perfect world would be animals being left in the wild. The majority of animals in the Zoo were bred in Zoos. In Africa we lose over 96 Elephants a day, along with big cats (100 a year), gorillas (300 or more a year), rhinos (3 a day over 1,000 a year) and giraffes etc. Many more animals are endangered and are on the brink of extinction. We can help the Zoos with their conservation efforts by being involved, this could include donations, supporting the Zoos by memberships or volunteering. My goal is for the pictures to show how magnificent these animals are and encourage others to get involved in saving God’s creatures. Hopefully, by people viewing my pictures of these majestic animals, they will see how incredible they are and accept that we need to do everything in our power to save them.
