After a brief delay in announcing the winners due to the overwhelming number of images and amount of time that our judges needed to go through each and every one of the images, we are finally ready to announce the winners!!

Before we do, I just want to thank each and every one who entered this contest.  And thank you all for your patience with waiting on the results!

The Seniorologie People’s Choice Awards 2015 was a contest that allowed us to gain some insight into what teens, parents and pros look for in an image.  I heard a lot of comments, especially from the teens and the parents, about what they like and don’t like in an image.

Almost all of the ones I heard from said they love to see senior’s having fun in their images and they love the images where they felt they could see and feel who that senior was by looking at the image.  They were not big fans of the overly posed images or the ones with the hands near the face as they felt it wasn’t natural.

These are tidbits of information that we can all learn from in order to create images that our clients and their parents (not other photographers) want.  And by creating images that our clients and their parents want, we will sell more and continue to gain more clients.

I think the biggest lesson we could learn from this is to stay true to your style and not conform to what the industry makes you think clients want and remember your client first and foremost.  Find out who she or he is, what are her (or his) interests and create a photo shoot that allows the viewer of the final images to gain a little insight into her or his personality.

Now, without further adieu, the winners of the Seniorologie People’s Choice Awards….We had 10 Categories and three winners in each of these categories – The Teen Choice Winner, The Parent Choice Winner and The Pro Choice Winner, allowing 30 Different Winners!

A special, huge THANK YOU to our AMAZING JUDGES!!!  It took a lot of time out of their busy schedules to go through these images and to carefully judge them to the best of their ability!  I can not thank them enough for participating!!!  Seniorologie Loves You!!

All winners are final.  The judges based their decisions on a set of criteria for each image, giving each image a score for each criteria.  The final decisions were made according to the scores the images received.  The winners will be contacted by those giving prizes.
