Sports was the strongest category and the judges were very impressed with the variety, peak moments and overall quality. First Place: The Vault was a fantastic angle that the shooter took, the clean background, expression on athlete and composition was excellent. Second place, High Bar, was a unique shot with humor and great lens choice. Third place, Vaulter was another unique perspective which was refreshing. The lens choice was right on and the photographer looked deeper than just an action shot.
Judges: Deb Cram, Rich Beauchesne, Ioanna Raptis
