FEATURE

Comments: A lot of wide ranging photos in this category. We chose a mix of moments and composition. 1. We really liked the friends photo.  The expressions on their faces combined with the mid-telephoto composition made for a compelling feature. 2. Great composition and framing made for a interesting feature of a cyclist crossing the bridge. 3. The photographer had the right moment with the river surfer. We liked the loose crop with waves and the city in the background.

Maggy Gisle, right, and longtime friend Larissa Healey embrace after they bumped into each other in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, B.C., on Tuesday May 9, 2017. For 16 years, Gisle believed her lot in life was to be a "junkie, a prostitute and a drug dealer." She's now among a number of indigenous women increasingly frustrated about the lack of a clear timeline to share their stories with the much-anticipated national public inquiry.

NEWS

Comments: 1. At first glance we almost overlooked this frame of John Horgan’s bus missing the mark. When we went back to look at what was happening, we appreciated the moment and the composition. 2. Nice fire training photo. Good action and impact. 3. Moody moment with that red light. Nice to see it cropped tight.

SPORTS

Comments: A great set of high impact sports moments quickly rose to the top of the list. We all had different thoughts about 1st, 2nd 3rd.  1. Really nice rugby stiff arm to the face.  Elevated angle made for a clean background. Nice light didn’t hurt either. 2. The poor Cowboy got the flat end of the bronc. We were hoping that guy was able to walk away after being trampled. 3. Nice open ice hockey check. Clean background at event level made this photo easy to read.

PORTRAIT

Comments: There were some good images here but a lot of them lacked a back story to them. The images we chose were not only nice but they told a story about the person. 1. Just when I say that, this image didn’t have the woman’s name but we had seen the story in another category so we could figure it out. The image really stood out to us for it’s mood and clean composition. 2. Nicely composed and thought out. The low angle and reflection really made this portrait stand out. 3. Really nice, in the moment, photo of Drag queen Iona Whipp.

In a small room painted a deep purple (chosen for its name, Fashionista), he has everything he needs to make the “confident, straightforward, very flirtatious” character come to life.



SPOT NEWS

Comments: Not the strongest category. Lots of car accidents. 1. Chose this because the photographer worked at making something a little different than just being there at a brush fire.  2 and 3. Cops and fireman standing around wrecked vehicles.

MULTI-PHOTO

Comments: 1. A very creative look of a political campaign.  Lots of fresh and surprising images. 2. Nice look at the Canadian rugby team and the 7’s tourney. Would like to have seen a tighter edit and consistent toning. 3. Once again a little tighter edit would have helped. Nice work by the photographer looking for creative angles and composition. Some worked, others didn’t.
