We had an amazing array of entries for our first Infinite Color Contest! If you somehow missed it, you can see all the details and entries here.
I wasn’t sure what to expect because this was our first biggest contest with an amazing number of prizes and options people could pick from!
I just want to thank everyone that took part because without you, this wouldn’t have been possible. It really showed me that you all really did enjoy this and I can tell how much fun everyone had being creative! Often that is really difficult to find the time to do work we actually have fun with!
We had a group of people who helped me decide on the winner(s). I spent some time really going through each one to ensure that everyone got a fair shot and it was really tough. I didn’t want to mess up and truly give the right person an opportunity. I would want the same if I entered a contest like this. But then I realized everyone was deserving, truly!
And the winner is…
Now with that said, I would like to announce our winner as photographer Leigh Schneider from Germany!
Her entry can be found here: LINK
She decided to take advantage of being a part of our future Retouching Retreats, where she will spend up to a week with a group of creatives. Her flight and room are all compensated including a spot at the event (collectively priced higher than our prize giveaway of $4,000). And she will receive the personalized training that comes with it!
Leigh had a really great before/after image but also a great entry and is a wonderful part of our community. I know she’s been creating for years and really is a great person who is a creative at heart. I am proud that she won this and hope she is excited to use this time to take her work to another level!

Thank you to everyone who took part! I really can’t tell you how fun this was. I can’t wait to do more and host more fun opportunities for the community! There’s nothing more fun than getting creatives together to do fun things like this!
