After six weeks of submissions and an intense judging period, we’re thrilled to finally announce the winner of the LightCollector Photo Contest ! We called upon designers, architects and creatives to try out Philips’ new LightCollector photo app  and collect light-inspired images from the world around them using their mobile devices. We received over 350 incredible entries, and even more of you came and voted for your favorite 20 photos – but there was one photo in particular that really stood out to our panel judges in the final round of the competition. We’d like to congratulate Allison Gates on her win for her photo “Wildfire “. Check it out after the break, as well as a few honorable mentions from our esteemed judges!
Congratulations to Allison Gates on her win for her photo entitled “Wildfire “. The photo is unedited and was taken at Green Lakes in Syracuse, New York.

Jill: “The colors and composition of this photo is fantastic and it really makes me stop and look to try to figure out what is going on in this image. It looks like a bunch of highway overpasses, but why are they glowing? And why are the overpasses lined with little planter boxes? Where was this taken and what is going on here?”

Reed: ”Excellent abstract photo with great colors. I like that you can’t tell if it was taken close up or far away.”

Lea: “Light is magic in this photo. The camera captures light as we cannot see it with our own eyes – moving, full spectrum beams of energy.”
