#My4BlockRadius: Announcing The Winners!

That's a wrap on our #My4BlockRadius photo contest! Thanks to the hashtag's creator, Ed Gilardon, and all our other judges: Devin AllenDan Cristea, and Efi O

We received thousands of incredible entries. Unfortunately, we could only choose one grand prize winner to receive a brand new iPhone X and four runners-up to receive Moment kits. Before we announce those winners though, let's take a look at some of the other incredible entries that deserve mentions! 




Some of you really captured the spirit of your daily life in one frame:

The Winners

But like we said, the judges could only choose a few of their favorites. So without further ado, here they are. 

Runner-Up Winners

Your runners-up, all recipients of brand new, Moment photo kits, are: 

1. This powerful and topical photo by Danny Cantu



An uplifting prayer amongst the group of volunteers prior to our start, a huge announcement was made. A female evacuee and her one-year-old daughter would arrive in Chicago on Monday in need of help. The team went to work to personalize a few boxes for them. This photo shows Kev with the very first box assembled for their arrival. What this photo doesn't show is that Kev went through a major surgery 4 months ago with a heart transplant. Still working his way to a 100% recovery, he makes time to answer the call for Puerto Rico. #my4blockradius #shotonmoment

Grand Prize Winner

And your grand prize winning shot was a favorite among all the judges and the Moment team as well. 

A brand new iPhone X and a full Moment photo kit goes to this beautiful, fleeting moment, captured by Jessie Salzbrun: 

Hey you, with the suitcase. I don’t know where you’re headed, but I hope it’s somewhere your heart feels at home. And you, with the overalls and Where’s Waldo shirt. Man do I dig your style. And you, ma’am. You don’t know this, but I watched you as you as you passed, and you carry yourself with a grace that made me stare. And you, yeah, you. Reading this. At your desk or in the hospital waiting room or in line at the store. I want you to know that you are loved. And not in the ‘some-stranger-on-instagram-told-me-she-loves-me-bc-my-soul-is-made-of-rainbows’ kind of way. (Although, that too.) No, I mean the real, everyday, mundane but therefore extraordinary kind of love. There are people in your life (I would even bet some that you wouldn’t expect) whose lives are better by you just living in it. Some days it’s nice to be reminded of that. So if today is your day, guess this is your nudge from the universe. You’re pretty neat.

Again, thank you for participating, and thanks for your entries. There were so many that we loved and aren't able to mention. 

Stay tuned! The next contest is just around the corner... maybe pun intended.
