Your Turn Photo Contest: Portfolio Winner Announced

The portfolio images were reviewed and the TWSNOW.com comments tallied to find out this year’s Your Turn Photo Contest Reader’s Choice and Grand Prize winners. In the end only one can win the privilege to attend HCSC‘s Photo Workshop this summer. Details in the portfolios like image impression, diversity, and consistency are what it came down to in picking who our next Your Turn Photo Contest winner would be.

The comments on the Reader’s Choice votes were neck and neck, but with the feedback we received when we posted Matt Berglund’s photo on our Facebook account, the winner was clear. Congratulations Matt, the Reader’s Choice winner.
