The first place image was different. It’s graphic, newsy and fun. The photographer was intimate enough with the subjects to give the viewers a great vantage point. Second place had a great composition. It was a new take on the usual sledding photo. The pink tube stands out immediately. Third place used a silhouette and vantage point to pull off a clean storytelling image. All of these images were newsworthy, not just pretty.
