AND THE WINNERS ARE:
GUEST BLOG—By Circles Robinson, Editor, Havana Times—To arrive at the winners of the Seventh Annual Havana Times Photo Contest 20 judges had to view the work of 190 photographers who submitted 1,506 pictures.
The contest was very competitive with a high level of work by both amateur and professional photographers. Of the winning photos, two were taken by Cubans, one by a US citizen and three by Israelis.
There were four rounds of selection. In the first cut, 119 photographers survived with at least one photo; in the second, 85. Going into the final round were 47 participants with a total of 72 images.
In the final round all the photos received at least 1 point in our rating system, which reflects the closeness of the contest.
Once again congratulations to the participants, and to the 20 judges who devoted considerable time over a month.
