Judges
Judged by Lincoln Journal Star staff photographer Francis Gardler

F-Feature 1st Place 50 Points
Photographer: DENNY SIMMONS
Image:f_dlse_001
Judges Comments:
The best features often display tender moments of engagement and emotion between those with the frame. This picture is an example of those qualities. The caption lacks the information to tell the reader what is wrong with John Mooney, but the caring nature of both caregivers is still evident and telling.

Another sweet moment between young and old, very Norman Rockwell-ian.

Sweet interaction once against with contrasting faces make this a winner

Clean image with streams of water cleverly framing the face of the firefighter.

Judges Comments:
Love that the attitude of the baby matches the Halloween. Overall, the rest of the category lacked real emotion and interaction between the people in the frames.

Kudos to the photographer to attempting to try a different perspective for an assignment that can be potentially mundane.

Multiple_Entry 1st Place Cream of the Crop 55 Points
Photographer: Rachel Mummey/The Herald
Image:Ma_RMMJ_01
Judges Comments:
Easily, the best story overall. The photographs not only told the story of the family and their continuing adjustment to life in the US, but it also showed how well the photographer was accepted into the family’s life and private places within the home. Well done!

Judges Comments:
This and the rest of the other stories lack the intimacy of the first place entry, but it shows the photographer made an effort to work the assignment to give the reader a sense of place, show visual variety in the images and some personality.

Judges Comments:
The picture of the five players hugging on the bench after the loss should’ve been entered as a single in the sports category. It would’ve placed among the top three. Overall, a nice collection of images from a sporting event. Good use of lenses to show visual variety. Good emotion and interaction.

S-Sports 1st Place 50 Points
Photographer: Matt Detrich / The Star
Image:S_MLDI_10
Judges Comments:
Excellent timing and clean image of Peyton Manning losing the ball as he’s hit from behind. All the elements fill the frame and include Manning’s expression. Showing how people feel about what’s going on to them, whether it’s sports or not, adds to the value of an image.

Love the kinetic feel of this image. From foreground to back it gives a sense of place and the excitement of the moment.

Judges Comments:
I like the feeling this picture gives me about nearing being inside this play. Overall, I missed seeing more of the emotion commonly seen from sporting events.
