1st Place: Skylar Ray, North Kansas City High School

Sophomore Andrew Nelson swims the 500-yard freestyle at Gladstone Community Center on Oct. 1. “Swimming a race is exciting. Just the thrill of being in a race, it’s like nothing else. I’ve never experienced anything like it,” Nelson said.

Judges’ Comments: Clear, beautiful face with just a little blurring on hand showing movement. Makes the reader feel like they’re there. Great leading line and reflection on glasses. Include more info into the caption. Crop it and angle it to where the floating line between the lanes is straight.

2nd Place: Dana Kalt, Notre Dame de Sion

Relaxation Station
Smoothing out the clay on her pot, junior Lia Concannon jokes with friends during her ceramics class on Oct. 3. Ceramics worked on things such as pinch pots, mugs, vessels, and wind chimes. “My favorie part of ceramics is that it’s such a good break in the day from school and it’s so relaxing,” Cocannon said. “I love just listening to music and zoning out while I work with the clay.”

Judges’ Comments: Captured a real class moment where the subject is engrossed in a project, which pulls the reader in. Crisp, clear with great color contrast and depth of field. Strong caption. Cut off elbow on the right, and cropped almost too closely. I would have liked to have seen a little more of her face.

Honorable Mention: Tyler Pedee, Kearney High School

Judges’ Comments: Crisp and clear and captures off the field action that students don’t always get to see. Great lighting. Need more information in photo. Crop closer; use cropping to show the reader just what you want them to look at.

After entering the game, senior Anthony Wadsworth marches out of the tunnel screaming. “Before the game I listen to 810 as my pre game,” Wadsworth said. “Entering the game I get in the mindset of violent thoughts upon my opponents.”
