I hope that we all know by now that we should be staying at home. And just because we’re at home all the time, that doesn’t mean we can’t get creative. Sigma has launched photo contest #SigmaShotatHome to spark this creativity further. The contest doesn’t only encourage us to stay at home and be creative but rewards us if we do so.

Wiki Loves Monuments is the world largest photography competition. Wikimedia states, “It’s also a platform for global collaboration in making beautiful, significant photos of monuments freely available to anyone, anywhere.” When photographers join the competition they simultaneously donate their images to Wikimedia Commons, “the free repository that holds most of the images used on Wikipedia, to ensure that the world’s most visible cultural heritage is documented and held in trust for future generations.”
More than 17,000 photos were submitted to Flickr’s contest. The five winners received a $200 gift card from Blurb each. This isn’t a lot of prize, but there is quite a bit of bragging rights involved, I guess. Flickr invited five photographers from the community to assist with the nominations and appointed three in-house judges from Flickr staff to select the winning images.
There are a host of very talented photographers on Flickr. The five winning images showcase some of the diversity uploaded to the platform. The judges have exemplary carried out their duties and awarded five deserving winners of the competition. One thing is for sure, it cannot have been easy to pick out the winners among the many submissions. Here are the winners:
