UPDATE JUN 13, 2018: AND THE WINNER IS…

 

 

@rosi.visuals, with a view of Chicago’s River near River North and Streeterville.

Here’s the collection of images from our contest

Our team picked this image because it’s matching the competition criteria, and we believe it catches Chicago’s mood and feel. There are other honorable mentions such as danny_7raceur, who didn’t follow our guidelines by uploading more than 6 images. Nonetheless, his pictures are great! Scottterry submitted some awesome drone shots and hennytron had some great, real street photography shots.

We’re looking forward to our next contest, we will be posting more images from this contest later on.
