With 2018 soon coming to a close, it’s time once again for us to go over the photos we’ve taken this year and share our ultimate favorite on Flickr for their annual Your Best Shot contest. Yes, you only have one shot at this, so make sure it counts — especially because there are prizes at stake this time.
According to Flickr, the community submitted over 6,000 photos to last year’s competition, and they’re expecting more this year. We can see why: they’ve got some sweet prizes in store for Your Best Shot 2018. Five winners will each receive a Peak Design Everyday Backpack and a SmugMug Pro account. So, better scour your drives, cards, and folders for that one winning shot! Think you don’t have it yet? Well, better get shooting!
Flickr started accepting entries on December 1, but we have time to join in the fun until January 7, 2019 (accounting for those stunning New Year’s Eve photos some of us are already planning). The only rule? Submissions must be uploaded in 2018, regardless of when it was taken.
Aside from preparing some cool swag for the winning snaps, the Flickr staff have also promised they will curate submissions and share themed galleries and make sure these photos get “awesome exposure.” Their favorites from each gallery will be showcased on the Flickr blog and social media channels come early 2019.
Now, if you’ll excuse us, we have some sorting and selecting to do!
