To celebrate the launch of Connect, we hosted a photography contest last month, inviting participants to share their best shot with us. We asked our readers to share an image that illustrates the meaning of "connect."
More than 3,000 images were submitted and we asked our panel of judges, mobile photographers and Connect contributors, Misho Baranovic, Star Rush, Anton Kawasaki, Daniel Berman and Brad Puet to help the Connect team choose six final winners.
We're pleased to announce that the top prize of $5,000 goes to Sudeep Mehta of Mumbai, India.
Our second prize of $3,000 will be awarded to Ramon Castillo of Antipolo City, Philippines. Four honorable mentions with $500 cash prizes go to: Ahmad Zamroni of Jakarta, Indonesia; Krisna Murti of Jakarta, Indonesia; Alamsyah Rauf of Sinjai Utara, Indonesia; and Tran Cao Bao Long of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. You can view all winning images here.
