HAVANA TIMESAfter much deliberation the 20-member jury has made its selections for the first cut in the 8th Havana Times Cuba Photo Contest.  In all 182 readers took part in the contest submitting a total of 1,503 photographs in the six different categories.

After the first cut, 118 of the participants have at least one picture in the second round. Best of luck to all who are still competing and most of all thanks for sharing your pictures with other HT readers.
