I captured two dental students comforting her about her fear of getting dental work on December 11, 2013”- Judge’s comments: “Captured the power of U of L's global community outreach” and “It strikes me as really having captured a moment. To me, it evokes the feeling of compassion, because I get the sense the two adults are very genuinely happy to be assisting the child. I think the black and white editing was an excellent choice here because the image is about the people and what’s happening between them as opposed to emphasizing, say, the pretty colors of the scenery.”- Prize: A $100 gift certificate to Murphy’s Camera and a $50 gift card towards a photo book of his travels

We camped out in the desert that evening.”- Judge’s comment: “It right away made me imagine myself being in the scenario pictured, out in the vast desert… it seems to imply a story and makes me want to know more.

All that open desert struck a chord with the adventure-seeking side of me!”- Prize: A $75 gift certificate to Murphy’s Camera
