Judge's Comments:

I was particularly impressed how they've quickly grown their network of services to support many regions and countries and secured a roster of 100 photographers in their start-up year on minimal investment. Well done!


Simple yet a brilliant idea and remarkable progress. All the best.


Impressive scaling metrics, interested to see how the business grows year over year.
