FEATURE

Comments:First goes to an absolutely stunning image.  The blue color, combined with ethereal soft lighting make it a clear winner.  Second place is another image with wonderful light and a great mood portrayed with the falling snow.  Both images make us feel cold, like we are there.  Third goes to an image that was technically executed quite perfect.  It isn’t easy to get such an image exposed that well, with detail in every part of the flame.  You can also see the subject quite well too.  A lot of fun to look at.

NEWS

Comments: First is a very powerful emotional image made in a very sensitive tragic situation.  Second was from the same event and is also powerful and emotional but the tears streaming down the step father’s face make that one the best photograph of the two.  Third is a very interesting, different image with great perspective and composition.  Something we haven’t seen before.  HM goes to a beautiful image with great light and composition made in a ceremonial setting.

SPORTS

Comments:  First place goes to an image that would be technically excellent to view to start off with- BUT the bear on the helmet creates a visual joke that puts this image over the edge into the category of something quite special.  Very fun.  Second goes to a wonderful emotional image capturing the feeling of several volleyball players in a pleasing composition.  Third goes to a great “crunch” photograph from a hockey game.  It’s a common event in hockey but an excellent execution.

PORTRAIT

 Comments:First goes to a gorgeous image.  We love the light and shadow and how every wrinkle in the man’s face stands out - like a map of this older man’s life.  Very telling.  Second goes to an image that is fun and quirky.  Third goes to an image that is beautiful, but also storytelling and creative in the way the photographer asked the subject to write on the window for the portrait.  Very clever.

Syrian refugee Hazar Al Sebai, who came to Canada with her husband and three children in January 2016 after spending three years in Jordan, poses for a photograph at their home in Vancouver, B.C., on Thursday December 22, 2016. Ms. Al Sebai wants to use her progress in English language courses to help other Syrian refugees and wants to work as a translator for Arab-speaking newcomers to Canada. The text written by her in Arabic on the window for the photograph reads 'My name is Hazar, I arrived in Canada in 2016 and now I am learning English.'


MULTI-PHOTO


Comments:We awarded first place to a thorough coverage of a relatively routine fire event.  The photographer did a great job in covering all their bases, by making photographs that gave a sense of place, a sense of the extent of the fire and damage, and the various people that were impacted, from displaced residents to a law enforcement officer.  It was a good tight, storytelling edit.  Second place went to a great unique story.  Though the story could have used a tighter edit, we liked the variety of images and different perspectives that the photographer used.  The Christmas tree photograph, also awarded in News was a particularly strong image.  Third went to a sports story mainly due to the thorough and varied approach that was employed by the photographer.  It had a clear beginning and end to the story with a variety of scenes shown in between. It could have used a tighter edit as well to reduce repetition.
