Over the past few months, we’ve showcased some of the beautiful images taken by local amateur and professional photographers alike and uploaded to the collaborative platform #CanonShine, which celebrates photos with a very personal meaning behind them. We’re now pleased to be able to present the top 50 most voted images, all of which capture something important in the world’s of the photographers who took them.

There’s only 17 days until the final winner is announced. Ultimately, the winning photographer will have their image brought to life through a national advertising campaign; a two month display in the NSW State Library; and will have a documentary made about their journey. Neat, huh?! You can follow the rest of this photographic adventure here.

Here are the 50 highest voted images below, along with videos about each of the inspiring #CanonShine ambassadors.
