Judges Comments:
A funny photo that was shot in an interesting way. We wish the photographer would have either included the hands at the top of the frame or gotten rid of them all together.

Photographer: Scott M Bort, Post-Tribune

Judges Comments:
We liked this behind-the-scene look at an event. It wasn’t literally people carrying out dogs, but a nice moment away from the expected action.

This is a funny picture that takes the viewer inside what it takes to make a puppet show. Great layers of information throughout the frame.

Judges Comments:
This is a great telling scene that requires a level of access that is harder to reach than your everyday assignment. Would have like to have seen it shot a little tighter. Kinda of looks like it was taken from far away with a really wide lens.

We liked the feeling the picture but wish it had been shot so that you could see the man’s face better and to where you wouldn’t need to crop it into a square.
