First and foremost - celebration photos are not sports action. Stop entering them here. They're sports feature, that's where they belong. To the winners: All the winners had one thing in common - clean backgrounds. Take note. First place we've seen before but this was too well executed to ignore. Second place was a really interesting composure and well shot, but was a little flat in toning. Third place was really unique and while we're sure it was an accident, the photographer knew well enough what they had to run it.
