1st Place Illustration: “Football Preview - Industrial Strength”
Corey Perrine/The Augusta Chronicle
1 2 3 ... 9 >

This year's high school fall football preview highlights some of the CSRA's top talent. The theme, Industrial Strength, is meant to illustrate the gritty, raw nature of the gridiron and the dedication these young teens have devoted themselves to the savage ballet -- American football.

Judges’ comments for the category

First place had great lighting and theme, we but felt that two were weaker, the leaping wide reciever andthe football crush. Third was a thorough and well done composition. Third was unique in it's in-camera work, well done. Great planning to get it done in-camera.
