Category Prizes:

In addition to the Prize Winners and Top 250, the judges also recognized some "Honorable Mentions" within the categories. Although not making the Top 250 or appearing on the website, these images were semi-finalists that prompted the judges to acknowledge their merit within the category context. This is a way of letting photographers know their entry caught the judge's eye and deserved credit for a fine image.

See the Categories page for details on what subject matter each category encompasses.
