FEATURE:
1st: Leafy Load (John Hart, Wisconsin State Journ) –  Great find by the photographer.
2nd: Twirling (John Hart, Wisconsin State Journ) – Nice use of light versus shadow. A better moment would have made this first.
3rd: School’s Out for fall Break (John Ehlke) – Photographer made a solid photo, but should have waited for a better moment.

GENERAL NEWS
1st: Commodore’s Ball (Matthew Apgar/Herald Times Reporter) – Interesting composition.
2nd: Mock Election (John Hart, Wisconsin State Journ) – Another composition helps a a run of the mill situation
3rd: Smoke House Evacuation (Matthew Apgar/Herald Times Reporter) – Waiting for a better moment would have placed this photo higher

SPOT NEWS

PORTRAIT
1st: Cross Country Runner (Matthew Apgar/Herald Times Reporter) – Great use of lighting and great creativity. Best photo of the whole contest.
2nd: Dan Powers/The Post-Crescent – Really great use of light.
3rd: Hope Scholarship (John Ehlke) – Simple and quiet, but nicely done.

1st: Intercepted! (Matthew Apgar/Herald Times Reporter) – Solid moment of action.
2nd: Dan Powers/The Post-Crescent – Best of the celebration shots
3rd: Cross Country Feet (Matthew Apgar/Herald Times Reporter) – The one photo in the category in which the photographer used some creativity.

PICTURE STORY
1st: Days of Ore (John Hart, Wisconsin State Journ) – Most complete story. Some strong photos, but needed a much tighter edit.
2nd: Dan Powers/The Post-Crescent – Great access on this story. Photographer needs to continue working this. Stronger moments will happen. Final frame was the story-telling picture and really helped this story place.
3rd: Family Bakery (Michael P. King) – Great images and a nice little story. Photographer could have done more to explore the family relationships though.
