First place had really interesting color and captured the personality of the subject. Second place had many interesting faces and great reaction. We liked how the photographer followed the light throughout the stadium in the third place entry. The photographer spent time in a number of angles. A few entries were eliminated because they also appeared in the photo essay category.
