Hey friends,

we’re absolutely amazed by all the amazing submissions we’ve got for Don’t be square. More than 1200 people have contributed more than 6180 photos, making it incredibly hard to choose just 2 winners and 20 runner-ups.

Together with CanvasPop, experts in printing photos on canvas, we were looking for photos that break the barriers of the square format. Landscapes, portraits, panoramas.. anything is possible as long as it shows the true beauty of free formats.

The grand prize: the 2 winners receive large-format canvas print of their photo, worth 200$ each!

And the winners are:

Congrats! The jury says:

Marcel’s image totally hits the spot: it captures a scene that can only be captured in a panorama, with a beautiful mood & sunlight on top of it. On the other hand, we liked @papapol’s photo because of its many shapes.
It’s framed in landscape, has a circle-shaped pool in the back and triangles floating through the sky. If that was intended or not we don’t know – but it’s definitely not square.

The following 25 images were in the final round by the jury and each get awarded witha 30$ gift certificate from CanvasPop:
