Cream of the Crop, 1st Place Sports

Record Searchlight/Redding, CA Andreas Fuhrmann/Photo Editor, Jakob Schiller/Photographer, Nathan Morgan/Photographer, Greg Barnette/Photographer

F-Feature 1st Place
Photographer: Justin Rumbach, The Herald
Judges Commnets:
Strong moment and clean composition that flows nicely. We felt like the moment was really honest and reinforced by the little moments all around it.

F-Feature 2nd Place
Photographer: Justin Rumbach, The Herald
Judges Commnets:
Funny, out of the ordinary moment. We like that we’ve never seen anything like it. We wish his eyes were open and wish the top-half of the frame was a little cleaner.

F-Feature 3rd Place
Photographer: Rich Janzaruk Bedford Times-Mail
Judges Commnets:
Nice double moment that places us in your community. Two guys wearing Carharts out in an icey parking lot is not something you see normally.

GN-General_News 1st Place
Photographer: Chris Howell, The Herald-Times
Judges Commnets:
It’s an image with impact. Very nice body language. Informational with the background. Nice light and kudos for getting we wet!

GN-General_News 2nd Place
Photographer: John Terhune, Journal & Courier
Judges Commnets:
It’s a nice quite moment and we especially like the trash bag. We wish the background was a little cleaner and we wanted you to be a little closer, more intimate.

GN-General_News 3rd Place
Photographer: Heather Charles, The Indianapolis Star
Judges Commnets:
There are a series of moments in this picture that all come together. We particularly liked the little boy down at the bottom. It’s an honest picture of a tough situation.

Multiple_Entry 1st Place
Photographer: Heather Charles, The Indianapolis Star
Judges Commnets:
An original story that carries well and covers a range of emotions.

Multiple_Entry 2nd Place
Photographer: Justin Rumbach, The Herald
Judges Commnets:
A challenging story well told. We get a sense of who Thyen is, not just what he does. Good moments, tying in his home character to work character.

Multiple_Entry 3rd Place
Photographer: Denny Simmons
Judges Commnets:
Nice access and connection with the subject.

S-Sports 1st Place
Photographer: Scott M. Bort / Post-Tribune
Judges Commnets:
Great moment that is juxtaposed with the other team. The strobe really works because it highlights the moment.

S-Sports 2nd Place
Photographer: Andrew Hancock, Journal & Courie
Judges Commnets:
Nicely framed (really clean composition), nice variety of faces, and we like that no one in the frame seems to notice the feet.

S-Sports 3rd Place
Photographer: Justin Rumbach, The Herald
Judges Commnets:
Nice use of access and we like how the photographer organized the chaos in the moment.

S-Sports HM Place
Judges Commnets:
We like that there are four pretty clean faces in this scramble and it’s good peak action.
