Cottage Life, “Waterfront” by Jackie Davis and Sandi Pilon
Visually appealing department with interesting use of graphics, headlines and decks to draw the reader in.
Texas Highways, “My Hometown” by Matt Joyce
I _really_ like this department. There’s something about the single large image that has a Texas-size impact.
Tie for Silver
Arizona Highways, “Journal” by Keith Whitney, Barbara Denney, and Robert Stieve
Strong wildlife photography and people portraits. Nice mix of scale on photos with strong opener pages.
Wyoming Wildlife, “In the Field” by Sara DiRienzo, Rene Schell, Tara Hodges, Justin Joiner, Patrick Owen, Tracie Binkerd, and Robert Gagliardi
I appreciate the true documentary nature of the photography—and readers especially will!
