Feature Photography (under 25,000 circulation)
Winner: John Lappa, Sudbury Star
A simple but effective shot that deftly captures a too-rare bright moment in the public reconciliation process, with the smiles on the faces of both the little girl and the elder offering poignant hope for the future.
Runner-up: Elliot Ferguson, Kingston Whig-Standard
A striking, nicely composed shot that skilfully spotlights – literally and figuratively – the moment of affection at its centre amid its unsettled surroundings.
Runner-up: Clifford Skarstedt, Peterborough Examiner
A shot that nicely captures this unlikely faceoff between (little) man and beast. From this shot, it’s easy to imagine the smile/awe under the little boy’s mask.
