In the past few months, we opened a call for photographers to nominate themselves as the Best Concert Photographer in Phoenix. We then had a panel of judges winnow the almost 50 entries down to 10 finalists. Over the next few weeks, we introduced you to each finalist and showed you their photos, and then last week, we had you vote.

Well, more than 2,500 votes later, we have a winner.
