Last weekend Shelly and I had the unenviable task helping judge the winners of Lume Cube’s Ultimate Toy Photo Contest.Together with Lume Cube’s team and Johnny (@sgtbananas) we had the incredibly assignment of picking our top 10 based on the judging criteria,
- Creative Lighting and
- Attention to Detail
There were over 2800 uses of #UltimateToyPhotoContest in 14 days, and over 2200 photos submitted on the Lume Cube website!
“WOW, what a contest!” – Trevor Farrow, Marketing
Due to the overwhelming response and the amazing calibre of the entries, the team at Lume Cube decided to extend the prize pool. What was initially a top 3, was expanded to a top 8, with the 5 runners up each receiving a Lume Cube! That’s how amazing the entries were, a top 3 just wasn’t enough!
Even though the prize pool was extended, that didn’t mean our job was any easier!
Shelly and I trawled through all 2800+ photos tagged with #UltimateToyPhotoContest on Instagram and narrowed our list down to 10 as requested. No easy task. I think our list initially bloated out, to well over 20!
And here are the winners, and the runners up.
Thank you Lume Cube, in particular Trevor for including Toy Photographers in this incredible contest. Shelly and I were completely blown away by all the amazing entries!
Congratulations to all the winners and runners up! Why don’t you jump on over to their accounts and show them some Toy Photographers’ love?
