We are pleased to announce the winner and 5 runners up in the Benjamin Kanarek Blog 1st Beauty Photography Contest.

There were several interesting submissions, but after many hours of deliberation, the winner of the Beauty Category goes to Grant Thomas

Photography: Grant Thomas

Model: Danielle Foster – D1 Models

Hair and Make Up:  Suki Miles

His sense of style, colour, composition, casting and identification of what is important in an image, gave Grant the edge. It is a wonderful Hair Illustration that we believe could be worthy of an Advertising Campaign.

We will shortly contact the winners of the Fashion and Beauty segment, to have them write us a short bio and story about their image submission, as well as their feeling about the industry they are pursuing. They will also be interviewed by me and be given the opportunity to pick my brain. The interview will be recorded for posterity.

Here are the runners up images. They are not being presented in order of preference…
