Honorable Mentions from World Views

written by:
July 22, 2011

In our World Views contest, we teamed up with Blurb and challenged our readers to share their view of the modern world. You heard our call and we were incredibly impressed by the hundreds of submissions that flooded in. We've decided to share a number of our personal favorites that, while they might not have won the prize, are certainly due more than just a high five.

All of the entries you see in the following slideshow are also featured in our first-ever photo book World Views. Of the hundreds of photos submitted we culled together the 3 winners and 62 honorable mentions that jumped out at our judges. Check out the grand prize winner and two runners up here. Though the competition wrapped up, we hope that World Views has encouraged you to break out your cameras, get the creativity rolling, and take in old sites in a new light.
