Calvin Mattheis, photojournalist at Knoxville News Sentinel. This was a strong set of photos that was very challenging to judge, especially the photo story section. I went back and forth of the first and second place stories several times. Great job by all!

Judges Comments:
Most would have dreaded an assignment to photograph a piano. However, the photographer did a phenomenal job providing context of where the piano is, the tight details shared a sense of intimacy, and the beautiful light gave an air of mystery. Love it!
