  1. Rob, you have one of the best photography blogs on the internet today . . . Thank you for keeping it real, and relevant! Tony

  2. Stella Kramer

    Anyone else think it’s weird for Richard Turley of Bloomberg to be a judge and end up being a multi-award winner?: I don’t take issue with the work, just the set-up.

    • you either have multiple judges to balance it out or you simply recuse yourself from judging your own work. I did it for PDN once and Kathy Ryan does it for American Photography each year. who would be left to judge if you remove all the photo editors?

  3. I had to know who racked up the most nominations, so I counted. It’s here:
