After a lot of deliberation we have picked a winner for the September Instagram photo contest. Here it is:
The photo was taken by @weather_grl771 in the Wichita Mountains, she will be receiving her white SLXTREME4 case designed by Snow Lizard Products very soon. It was a very tough decision because there were so many great entries. The only thing we regret is that we only had one prize to give out.
Unfortunately there were also a few great entries that had to be disqualified because they didn’t follow the rules as described in our earlier post.
For the sake of transparency we want to mention that we graded down photos with watermarks or those that were not cropped to a square (black or white bars on top and bottom or sides). Since it was an Instagram photo contest we were looking for those that were truest to the platform itself. We still considered some of these for the winners but had to deduct points because the watermarks and bars distract from the photo. We also anonymized all the top picks for before judging the final winner.
We want to thank everyone for participating and we hope to offer more of these kinds of contests in the future.
