And The Winners Are….

I am excited to announce the winners for Holga Week 2014! As you know, there were three judges – Michelle Bates, Christine So from Holga Inspire, and myself (HolgaJen). Each judge picked one winner who will receive a prize from Holga Inspire (winners – check your email!). We also each picked two “honorable mentions” because there was so much great work submitted it was hard to choose just one! Both the winners, and the honorable mentions will have a chance to have their Holga work featured on The Holga Darkroom blog. I will be in touch with each of you soon to arrange this if you are interested.

And now, for the photos!
