Flickr often launches fresh and happening contest on the flickr community for users and members to participate by highlighting their work and giving them the chance to have their talent and photography shin under the limelight. Only in the beginning of this month of December, flickr announced a ‘Your Best Shot 2012’ group where photographers can submit their single best photograph taken over the year of 2012, the entire past year. We had the pleasure of browsing and scanning through some of the beautiful submissions and got the chance to pick up a few and attempt to do justice to some of the photographer and their work by featuring them in this post.

Most of the images you will be browsing through below are from this group. Allow them to inspire you and persuade you into perhaps sending in your own best shot from this past year – there’s still time till the New Year so start snapping if you haven’t already got one.
