The Home School Gym series won 1st place because the photog looked like they really stayed and worked the story to capture nice moments from an assignment that isn't as easy as it would seem. The B&W prison series took 2nd for it's mood and access and 3rd place went to the Forge series. It made us feel like we we're actually there with the photographer. That's not always easy to achieve.
