First place is a winner - literally. We love the strong honest emotion and use of the drag of the shutter to create a sense of motion and emotion in the moment. Second place is another classic election photograph and is nicely layered and composed. Third place is a reliable solution to a regularly-covered event - nice use of repetition of form in the composition and good light.
