Judges Choice Awards

Lisa Asp - Teaching New Dogs Old Tricks by Kathy Weirda

“Congratulations!  What a fabulous image.  Puppies are fun, but difficult subjects and you photographed the litter beautifully.  The placement and storytelling you created is wonderful.  Nice work!”

George Dunlap - Misty Morning Adventures by Kathy Weirda

Dave Johnson - Sweetness by Kathy Weirda

Steve Helmbrecht - Misty Morning Adventures by Kathy Weirda

This is one of my favorite prints I've seen in competition. The impact is a joyous celebration of youthful adventure. The color palette goes so well with the title and expressions on the boys faces. I congratulate you in putting this vision into a story that will be an eternal resting place for our eyes and soul.”

Bill Blake - This Little Piggy by Kathy Weirda
