…Astro James Lugo, from the Cebu City, Central Visayas- Philippines Photo Walk, who actually received the most votes for his image (above).
We had incorrectly identified the “People’s Choice Award Winner” yesterday as an image from a London, UK walk, and the error was totally 100% ours (just one of the many missteps we’ve had this year – more on all that soon), and of course, we feel terrible for both parties: Nicolas who took a great image and was announced as the winner, and Astro who was the actual winner this year, so we’re going to present prizes to both photographers (instead of just one), but the official People’s Choice Award for 2015 is Astro’s image seen above.
As you might imagine, we’re terribly upset about how this all played out, and my humble apologies to Astro James Lugo Lugo for the mix-up on our part, and to Nicolas as well. At the same time I want to offer my hearty congratulations to Astro for his wonderful capture — one that was chosen 2015 People’s Choice Award by photo walkers around the world. Well done, Sir.
All my best,
