From the 1369 entries submitted to the contest, we have selected 30 photographs that will enter the 2nd. stage of judging. Remember, we are not looking for the best photographer, but photos that are exceptional as Stock Photos.

It’s been hard selecting this bunch. The overall quality of images submitted to the contest is superb, and most would easily get into any professional stock photo site out there. We would like to thank all the photographers for their excellent submissions.
