Connect Photo Contest

To celebrate the launch of Connect, we hosted a photography contest last month, inviting participants to share their best shot with us. We asked our readers to share an image that illustrates the meaning of "connect".

More than 3,000 images were submitted and we asked our panel of judges, mobile photographers and Connect contributors, Misho Baranovic, Star Rush, Anton Kawasaki, Daniel Berman and Brad Puet to help the Connect team choose six final winners.

Congratulations to everyone who entered our contest!
