It was overwhelming how much talent was crowded into the Sky Loft at the MGM Grand on the evening of Tuesday March 12. Around every corner was another photographer, inventor or successful business person who you have only heard about. Aaron Nace pouring drinks, Jeremy Cowart waiting in line for the bathroom, it was (in an overused word but the only one that really makes sense) surreal.
The [F] Awards were completely crowd-sourced. The nominations and then the final winners were voted on completely by the public. Fstoppers won because you, the readers, wanted us to win. For that, we are beyond thankful. You put us, just a bunch of people who love photography, into a room full of true rockstars in the industry. To win was just icing on the cake.
To everyone who voted for us, thank you! We would not be where we are without you.
