Grand Jury Winner

"Each individual element of this photo could be seen as ordinary but in this context—as a whole—it is magical. I love everything about the way it came together." - Brian Matiash

Runner Up

"It's so easy to take something as elemental as eating for granted. Most of the times, we're stuffing our faces without even knowing that we're actually eating because we're consumed with everything around us. So, to see these two little guys totally focused on this simple act of eating some berries, I can't help but smile." - Brian Matiash

Runner Up

"An overall charming photo but what really caught my eye was thinking about how this could be an early snapshot in what could be a blossoming musical journey for this little girl. It's the story that this photo could tell that is most intriguing." - Brian Matiash
