How Did Photo Of The Year Work?From thousands of nominated photos, 32 were selected to pit against each other in a college basketball bracket-like showdown. At that point it was up to you, the users, to vote on the match-ups. The photos with the most votes moved on to the next round. So 32 photos narrowed down to 16, then 8, 4, 2 until there was a single photo deemed the 2018 Photo of the Year Presented by Jenson USA.
What was at stake? $10,000 Cash
