  • Place Name: First Place
    Contestant Name: Bemidji - The Bemidji Pioneer
    Entry Title: Sanford Bagley Medical Center celebrates 10 years with community event
    Entry Credit: Madelyn Haasken
    Judge Comment: An exuberant, spontaneous smile in a setting that makes use of colors. The crop could have been a bit tighter while still giving a sense of the scene.
  • Place Name: Second Place
    Contestant Name: Austin Daily Herald
    Entry Title: For the love of the mullet
    Entry Credit: Eric Johnson
    Judge Comment: Their sincere happiness comes through: father and son who love one another. Excellent use of natural light, but cropping out the father’s foot is a bit awkward.
  • Competition Comment: Cropping would have improved several of the entries. Some were too tight, and others far too loose.
