The top two photographs came from a school lockdown. We chose the first place winner because of the emotion in the scene and that the photographer also included the school in the background for context. Second place was a unique angle and we liked the access the photographer got. In third place was the rescue of a kitten during a fire but it lacked an immediacy to the situation. Only 7 entries.
