Congratulations to our spotlight artist Erika Brooke Franta
Brianna had this to say about the winning image: "I believe love is blind and love is pure. As a social worker myself, I am a true witness to the REAL and genuine love that individuals with intellectual disabilities truly have. These kids are heaven on earth and truly deserve to come out on top for this couple theme! Because this little couple melted my heart and won me over!"

This Theme "Blue" was meant to be completely open to interpretation as I wanted to adventure into how you all see the blue in our world, in your world. The submissions were as varied as each soul who took them and I couldn't have had a more difficult time choosing a spotlight artist for this one.
Theme chosen and judged by Jade Lyf of Lyf Is Grand Photography
Congratulations to our spotlight artist Aseel Aziz-Gomez of Zoombug Photos - Lexington KY
I had a truly difficult time choosing a winner for this theme, there were a couple of images that I kept coming back to but this one has an air of nostalgia for me that I can't deny. Truly a perfect image of summertime with friends or family, encased in clear blue water and soaked in fun and sunshine. Wonderful.

I wanted to celebrate the first day so summer by being surrounded by amazing images of summer around the globe. You did not disappoint!
Theme and judging by Ashlee Krammes.
Congratulations to our Spotlight Artist Mike Wade of Rural Life Photography
I adore the frozen action and the way the water droplets are suspended in the air like crystals. Though both boys' faces are completely obscured, you can still feel the joy that only summer can bring to childhood. Thank you Mike for sharing this with us!

You guys absolutely blew us away, as always.

Congratulations to Spotlight Artist Alicja Pietras
This image is deeply moving, there is so much feeling tied into it with the monotone and the blur, the textures and the grain it feels very much like a memory. Simply Stunning.

Angela wanted to explore the theme or concept of “loneliness” as a human and an artist. How is loneliness expressed in photography and what can we do as photographers to shed light on this subject. She gave us this quote:

Angela says: "I loved the crop, the texture you could almost feel and the look of solitude of the subject. Congratulations"
