Designer of the Year • Spring Winner Announced

Thank you to everyone who entered our Designer of the Year contest for the Spring quarter. We were overwhelmed by the incredible submissions we received, and it was a difficult decision for our judges. However, we’re pleased to announce our first, second and third place winners for Spring quarter.

Spring – First Place

Our Spring quarter first place winner is Camille Bensler of Jonetsu Studios in Vancouver, B.C.! The spreads Camille submitted were praised by the judges for incorporating original elements such as the parent’s wedding photos, and the beautiful use of overlays. Camille’s submission will be judged against the Summer, Fall and Winter quarter winners and one will be awarded 2015 Designer of the Year and the grand prize of $5,000.

Spring – Second Place

Our second place winner was Marius Barbulescu of Marius Barbulescu Photography in Romania. The judges said these spreads had great storytelling elements, and felt like they were out of a movie – from the flirty first meeting to the happily ever after.
