    Judge Comment: Just an outstanding rodeo photo. The angles of the bull and rider work perfectly together, with the tail and chaps somewhat mirroring each other to add visual interest. Toss in the slobber in the bull's mouth and you have a winner. Great job. This one deserved a big, front-page display.
  • Place Name: Second Place
    Contestant Name: Foley-Benton County News
    Entry Title: State Bound (Foley Falcons baseball team clinches state appearance)

    Judge Comment: Strong celebration photo of a team at one of its high points of the season. These are the kinds of photos that stay in scrapbooks for years to come.
  • Place Name: Third Place
    Contestant Name: Jackson County Pilot

    Judge Comment: Another excellent celebration photo. The brightness of the mouth guard and the tenseness of the wrestler's neck make this one stand out.
  • Competition Comment: Really a strong competition. There were five or six other photos that were serious challengers for the top three.
