Judges

The Wenatchee World Don Seabrook – Photo Editor Loren Benoit – Staff photographer We saw some redundant photographs in the multiple entry category. We’d like to stress the importance of complete captions. In sports, why is this image important to the game and please include the results of the play or game. This region is strong in sports photography but we feel sorry for you having so many rainy games.
