HAVANA TIMES — Judging continues for our 7th Cuba Photo Contest. This year we had a total of 1506 entries from 190 participants.

In the first of four rounds of selection the 20 jury members were asked to select a maximum of 40 pictures in each of the six categories.

To reach the second round a given photo needed to have the votes of four or more jury members. A total of 119 photographers had at least one picture make it to the second round, which includes 336 photos.

We look forward to your comments on the selections and the contest. We hope to have the Second Round results ready to publish by the middle of next week.

    It takes a lot of effort to come up with these incredible photos. We in the States take it for granted so for this reader and fan of Havana Times, congrats to all and mostly a major thank you for giving all of us a peak at what you’re doing and creating in Cuba! Bravissimo!
