January Family Portrait Contest: The Winners

It's time to announce our January Family Portrait Photo Contest winners. We continue to be awed by the talent of our photography community. Thank you for your dedication to your craft and capturing memories that will last a lifetime. For January's Photo Contest, we requested images of families. Whether it be a family in the traditional sense, a family of friends, a family of ducks, or a family of the heart, we wanted to see how our photographers captured images of "family." We ultimately tried to find photos that were the most unique and the most techinically difficult to capture. 

Each of our photography contests allow for two Grand Prize winners of $150 in print credit to be used at CGProPrints.com. Our "Voter's Choice" Winner is determined by the most number of votes received, and our "Staff Selection" winner is chosen by the panel of CG Pro Prints staff judges, mentioned above. These selections were then narrowed down to one Grand Prize winner and 8-10 "Honorable Mention" entries that are recognized on our blog and social media.  We're very excited to share the results with you.

Without further ado, here are the winners...
