Feature Multiple

1st Dan Lassiter Dunkin’ Dawgs
2nd Evan Siegle Green Bay Milkman
3rd Corey Wilson New Teacher’s First Week

Three winning entries told a short story. Third Place (Corey Wilson) entry’s headline “First Week” doesn’t match the photos which look like they were shot in one day. Most entries were a collection of averge photos lacking a focal point.

2nd John Maniaci Hot Tips to Stay Cool
3rd Mark Hoffman Tomato Salad
