How are the winners chosen? 


Winners are now selected in a two-part process:
1. Once entries close, we move onto the first round of judging, in which our finalists are determined by a panel of judges at our offices based on creativity, quality of work and photography and interpretation of the theme.
2. Our finalists then move on to the second round of judging, in which the top 3 finalists will be determined by popular vote on @milkshakeusa Instagram account. You encourage your friends, family, colleagues and those strangers who follow you on social media to vote for your image.
