2017 HOT 100 Winners!

OMG ALL OF US FEEL LIKE WE HAVE RAN A MARATHON!  But let’s just take a second and say WOW!  The images this year made our judges job extremely difficult.  But lets put it into perspective…. there were 8315 images entered.  7 hour  final elimination round.  All to get to this list. THE LIST!  This final list of the absolute best of the best images of 2017.  Our judges worked very hard.  I personally cannot even imagine the stress they were under to compile this list given the volume and incredible amount of amazing images they had to look at.  Let’s all just take a moment to thank True Moua, Devon Jones and Thomas Nguyen.  Their job was insurmountable and yet they prevailed-maybe a little stressed and exhausted and racing to the local Starbucks.

Below you will see the names per category and I will be revealing the images that correspond with the names when we release The HOT 100 Issue  on November 15th!  These images will only be revealed in the magazine and  I cannot wait to share these gorgeous images with you! And getting to know the talent behind them in the coming year!  Yes each and every one of you on this list, I want to see you on the blog, social media, etc. in 2018!  Congratulations on the hardest fought battle of the year and in HOT 100 history!

Let’s all take a deep breath before we see who made this year’s list…

Ok ready?

No seriously, who am I kidding you have already scrolled to the list!

Here are the HOT 100 winning images of 2017…
