We are so excited that our first photo contest hosted on our site has wrapped up and we have winners to announce. There were some amazing photos entered in our inaugural photo contest. We can't thank everyone who participated enough. Thanks to all who entered photos and to everyone who voted.

We will be continuing to tinker with the contest page here and there to make it easier for you to share your entries & your votes via social media. We would love to hear what you think as well. Let us us know your thoughts on improving the photo contest. You can leave your comments on this blog post, on our Facebook page or email us at support@canvaspress.com. As we continue to launch new photo contests in the future our goal is to make this mix of fun, inspirational, challenging, silly, & possibly even thought provoking. So stay tuned to what we have up our sleeves for future contests. Photos taken with an iPhone or a professional DSLR are all welcome. We hope that even if your only camera is your phone, you aren't discouraged from entering your photos to future contests.

From the top 10 photos with the most votes the Canvas Press staff judged the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. This is never an easy task. Especially with the quality number of photos that were entered in this contest. Ok, on to the winners.

1st Place goes to K. Iliya from Haiku, HI

Tips-n-Tricks #120

The difference between a snapshot and a photograph deals a lot with composition. Fill your frame with as much of the "subject" as possible try to leave out anything that is distracting to the eye (trash cans, power lines, back of peoples heads etc).
