Judges were the photo staff of the Register-Guard.

Judges comments: It was a pleasure to judge the work. Several categories (features and sports) had many strong entries. In general news, our collective bias was toward photographs conveying strong emotion. Portrait/illustration was by far the most difficult category and generated a long discussion to arrive at the winners. Several otherwise good pictures stories were diminished in impact because of a lack of tight editing.
