Juror's Statement and List of Award Winners

Bob Lerner, photojournalist and freelance commercial photographer will be the Juror for this Photography Show. A sixty-year retrospective, "A Lens to the World", was recently held at the Chrysler Museum of Art, in Norfolk, Virginia.

Juror's Statement

Judging this exhibition has been an honor and a pleasure. I believe there is a lot of high quality work here -- work that reflects the artist's personal vision.

The criteria I apply in judging are the same standards I use to evaluate my own work as well as the students I mentor.

First, there must be an understandable idea. To quote Ansel Adams "One thing that distresses me is a sharp picture of a fuzzy concept."

Second, I believe a body of work of three pictures that holds together is a very good measure of the artist's talent.

Thirdly is the presentation -- good print quality, framing and matting always enhances the work.

I would like to express my congratulations to those of you that have received recognition, and I encourage all of you to continue to pursue this wonderful art.
