Grand Jury Winner

"The look on the child’s face is very natural and sincere. The image as whole captures the attention instantly and embodies the essence of “people who inspire us”. The focus on the child’s eyes and him literally looking up to his father, further emphasizes his look of admiration. It stirs emotions that really inspire you to be a better human being. Also, I do appreciate the minimal post processing on the image itself." -Rambod Radmard 

Runner Up

"I love the authenticity of this image. It really captures the genuine and hard working nature of people living a rural life which is quite inspirational. The composition is well-balanced despite it being a unrehearsed setting." -Rambod Radmard 

Runner Up

"The flow of the dancer’s skirt and the distance of her toe from the ground together with her arch really inspires weightlessness and freedom. The vignette, B&W and focus make for a visually beautiful composition. A great work of art." -Rambod Radmard
