Hoopie Award Photo Honorable Mentions 2017

by Philo Hagen

While most web sites and publications do their big Year End Wrap Ups at the beginning of December, we’ve always waited until the year is actually over. For starters, some really cool stuff can roll out during those final weeks of the year. Then, of course, we also have our annual Hoopie Awards celebration to consider.

The Hoopies are pretty special. There’s something very cool about being recognized by your peers, and there were some truly amazing nominees this year too. That being said, it doesn’t mean our community based awards process is infallible. Sometimes things that were quite popular during the year are met with a certain ambivalence later on. Sometimes things we think were deserving of being much more popular simply weren’t. Does that mean either shouldn’t be acknowledged again though? Absolutely not.

So every year, once the voting for the Hoopies has come to a close, we step inside our hoops, spin ’em in reverse, and take a look back at other noteworthy hooping moments of the past year that are worth revisiting. Yesterday we took a look back at video, and today we’re turning the spotlight on hoop photography. Here’s our Hoopie Awards Honorable Mentions list for 2017 and our greatest hits for photos.
