Thank you to all the photographers that participated in The Battle Of Amateurs Photo Contest, sharing their best photos and display their talent. Congratulations to the winners and finalists, and a special round of applause for the Grand Jury Winner who wins either an Apple Watch Sport or iPad Mini.

A special thanks to our friend and professional photographer Thomas Hill for his collaboration as a guest judge. Thomas Hill is an avid landscape photographer currently living in Vancouver, BC. He is a qualified domestic gas engineer who ventured to Canada, from the UK, in 2013 and was instantly drawn to the captivating coastline and mountains of British Columbia. Self-taught, he has been able to harness his creative talent to capture the beauty of the local landscapes in his pictures. Thomas' personality and dedication is seen through his unique style of work.
