    Judge Comment: Capturing a photo of a backflip mid-air is never an easy feat - great job! I also really like the saturated colors of the bonfire, with all the people being lit up well, surrounding the subject. It’s very striking.
  • Place Name: Second Place
    Contestant Name: MSU/Mankato - The Reporter
    Entry Title: Coming Out
    Entry Credit: Dylan Engel
    Judge Comment: I really like how this shot shows clearly what the content is, while also being crisp and in focus with the flag and posters slightly framing the student. You can tell the true emotion immediately in the photo, which isn't always easy to capture. Well done!

    Contestant Name: The Clarion
    Entry Title: Alina Yermakovich
    Entry Credit: Bryson Rosell
    Judge Comment: This is a beautiful portrait from the emotional side to the technical photography side. The lighting is perfection. Great job!
  • Competition Comment: This was a very close competition to judge! Well done for everyone who submitted, as all the photos I saw had great things about them. Continue on with your photography for the future!
