Judges were unanimous (unanimoose? Sorry...yes, we know these aren't moose) with selecting the first-place entry due to its fun, lighthearted approach to shooting one of the many indoor expo events we all have to cover in our careers. Second-place was simply a lovely moment captured well, with a good cutline to match. Our third-place entry was a solid take at a run of the mill protest, one in which the photographer took the right amount of time to make a better image than the standard picket-line picture.
