Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photos of hands in this photo contest with chances to win a Nikon D3300 SLR Camera and more!

A special thanks to friend and professional photographer Jennifer Hudson for her collaboration as a guest judge in this photo contest. Jennifer Hudson is a young visual artist creating staged imagery that is both artistically stylized and meticulously crafted. Drawing inspirations from themes of faith and the intricacy of personal relationships, Jennifer is a dynamic and emotional illustrator of the human heart. The work is soulful, seeking the use of the forgotten or discarded, heavily symbolic, eerie and quiet.She references her faith and spirituality to bring insight and awareness, using heartfelt, acutely mapped personal experiences.
