A number of good entries were discounted because they were not in the right category. Jube shots are sports feature photos. There were two entries that were automatically disqualified because they showed up in both Sports Action and Sports Feature. First place is an image that was shared widely online for good reason. Second place was a peak action shot where the judges cringed upon impact. Third place had many elements going for it with the fan banging away on the glass, being in your face with the action.
