John Hynal, Juror, Photography Entries

Judge’s Statement, Photography Awards

It was a treat to be the judge of this competition. But it was not an easy task. There were so many excellent images; even the ones that did not win awards were worthy of being on exhibit. The variety of styles and presentation made my job all the more difficult. Creativity was the watchword of all the entries. Not only the winning images, but the other entries as well, displayed an artistic touch and great command of the medium of photography. I would be proud to display many of these works of art in my home. The winning photographs were outstanding in their impact and composition. They showed not only an unusual mastery of the technical, but also a great deal of creativity, style, and technique.
