The lucky winner received a prize of $1000 USD, thanks to Brand USA.

We love how the photographer captured so much joy in this shot. The subject could have been overpowered by the bright lights and billboards from Times Square, but the low angle, colorful outfit and big smile made this shot a clear winner.

Marcia Fernandes gave us the story behind this image: “This was the first time we took the kids to NYC. They were just amazed by all the lights and signs and especially the fact that it was the background for so many movies they’ve seen. The look on his face just needed to be registered forever!”
