Spot News- not enough contestants, carried over to November.
Multi-Photo- not enough contestants, carried over to November.


Comments: The first place winner quickly stood out for the judges as a well composed and dynamic image from an everyday event. The judges appreciated the second place winner's use of a low angle to draw the viewer into the action. Third place went to a fun moment with good color on a grey day. The snowball fight image also stood out and deserved an honorable mention.

Comments: First place went to an out-of-the-ordinary image from what appeared to be a scripted campaign event. The photographer had to see the moment and get down to the child's level. The judges liked the second place image for the composition and the candid moment with the children. The judges appreciated the tight cropping to emphasis the interaction between and girl and her great grandfather in the third place winner.

Comments: First place impressed the judges with an image that is just plain hard to make. Second place went to a striking moment under moody conditions. Third place went to a tightly cropped goaltender image distilled down to the eyes, hands, and puck. A clean football image with graphic elements received an honorable mention.

 Comments: The portrait category was the strongest category and the most difficult to judge. First place edged out second with a well composed, energetic image with strong lines that draw the viewer into the image. Second place stood out to the judges with dynamic lighting and composition. Again, third place stood out with strong lighting, but lacked the energy of the first and second place images.
