Best Multiple Picture Group/Category 20 First place Stepping forward Dave Weatherwax The Herald (Jasper) Comments: An intimate look at the subject's recovery, good mix of images and strong compositions. Second place Quad Squad Rachel Mummey The Herald (Jasper) Comments: Same as first-place photo: good intimate look at the story, with a good mix of images. Third place Healing powers Dave Weatherwax The Herald (Jasper) Comments: Hard to say this is third. Another good mix of images that tell the story strongly.
