This Week’s Top Picks from the MC Photo Comp


We’re currently wading in the thick soup that is our annual MC Photo Comp, and we’re not planning on drying off anytime soon.

Think you’ve got a prize-winning entry sitting on a hard drive somewhere? You should enter. Think your photos aren’t prize-winning material? You should enter. Most of our past winners thought the latter, some even entered in the dying hours of the competition, and look at them now—$5,000 richer.

In the spirit of promoting a bit of healthy competition (but also just showing off how good the entries are), we’ve put together a bunch of our favourite shots from the Travel, Portrait, Lifestyle, Action, Music, and Student categories over the past week. Scroll on and enjoy the best of the week that was, below.
