Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photos showing peaceful moments in the Zen Moment Photo Contest with chances to win a Fujifilm X-T1 camera and more!

A special thanks to our friend and professional photographer Eric Girouard for his collaboration as a guest judge in this photo contest. Eric Girouard is a landscape photographer born in British Columbia on the beautiful west coast of Canada. Playing by the sea and mountains sparked his love of the landscape, which only grew deeper with time. Originally trained as a painter with a degree in Fine Art from Concordia University in Montreal, Eric traded in his paintbrushes for pixels when he first used Photoshop 2.0. He has since then worked in photography, as well as the areas where print and web design meet digital photography. He started teaching in 1997 and joined the faculty of John Abbott College’s Graphic & Web Design department in 2001.
