Photo Contest 2016
- The Top 10 Entries

by Wellesley Gayle

Your wait is over!!!
The judges cards are in!!!

Here now Is Our 2016 Jamaica Photo Contest TOP 10! (below)

What An Event!

Based on the history of our photo contests, I had great expectation for this one.

And expectation realized...
The contests are getting sweeter every year!!!

And one observation for me, is that, regardless of the political or economic challenges we encounter here, people really, really, really love Jamaica!

We approved 62 adorable entries that are vying for the top prizes (thanks again to our sponsors).

And in my opinion (and the judges too) any of them could have landed in the top 10 - easily!

But we had to narrow it down to 10.

Our esteemed judges (here they are ) went to work and rated their Top 10 based on photo & write-up (originality and passion).

And now, here they are. In no particular order.
