What the judges had to say:

David Griffin, Visuals Editor for the Washington Post said, “What I enjoyed about the judging was the diversity of approaches from the studio to the street – with the very best exhibiting high quality and appropriately applied technique.”

Molly Roberts, Chief Photography Editor at Smithsonian magazine noted, “I was extremely impressed by the range of work, from constructed images, to conceptual portraits, to creative still-life, and in depth reportage. It’s clear that the medium is alive and well and providing a very flexible tool for creative expression, as well as serious storytelling. I look forward to continuing to follow the work of these creative young photographers, and I commend the photographic educators for their commitment and for preparing the next generation to carry on our collective passion for photography.”

Brian Smith, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and President of APA Editorial Photographers said, “I was blown-away by the outstanding quality of work entered this year.
