1st: Charlie Nye
Just what a feature should do–surprise and delight the reader.
2nd: Natalie Battaglia/The Times
Technically well executed and puts the reader right there in the story telling circle.
3rd: Denny Simmons
There’s beauty in the ugliness of it all.
HM: Chris Bergin, The Star Press
Photographer captured nice emotion and great light.
1st: Denny Simmons
Nice patterns that are broken by the inspector looking over the edge of the bridge.
2nd: John Terhune, Journal & Courier
Tight, clean and to the point.
3rd: Charlie Nye
Funny photo from a boring event.
Cream of the Crop
1st: Matt Detrich
What a great moment from a celebration. The players’ body language and the spectators’ reaction is just great.
2nd: Joseph C. Garza, Tribune-Star
This is a different way to look at cross county runners.
3rd: Melanie Maxwell
More feature than sports but a nice clean photo that makes you feel good.
HM: AJ Mast, Freelance
This looks like it’s going to hurt.
1st: Chris Bergin, The Star Press
A very strong photo from a weak category.
2nd: Melanie Maxwell
Having details in the caption gathered from the scene makes this a better choice for second place.
3rd: Chris Bergin, The Star Press
Best of the rest. A weaker caption lead the judges to make this photo third.
1st: John Terhune, Journal & Courier
Overall a weak category. This group of photos told the best story.
2nd: Matt Detrich
The color value helps this lift it to second.
3rd: Charlie Nye
This story had more photos that have a style than the others.
