Here are the finalists!

Winners will be announced shortly.

We are very pleased to announce the finalists in our Matter of Time photo contest! We asked you to share your photos that captured special moments in TIME, or expressed the concept of TIME and we were blown away by the creativity of the entries we received. Narrowing it down to a short list of finalists was difficult, but here they are. Thanks to everyone who entered and voted - stay tuned for the announcement of the winners.

Voting for our People's Choice award closed at 4pm ET on Friday February 5. We have recorded the votes as of that time and will announce the People's Choice winner once the judging panel has selected the Grand Prize and Runner Up winners. Any votes entered after the voting period closed will not be counted.
