Take over 500 entries exhibiting a broad range of photography and printing skills; three judges each contributing decades of experience to the arts; and a conference room in the heart of New York City on one of the coldest days in history; and you get the ingredients that result in the winning images for the Legion Paper Photo Contest. The images were judged in three categories: Nature, Portrait, and Still Life. The judges selected the work that presented outstanding print quality, composition, concept, design, and the artist's paper choice. The judges were George Schaub, Editorial Director, Shutterbug; Phil Marco, Photographer and Cinematographer (www.philmarco.com); and Len Levine, Co-Founder, Legion Paper (www.legionpaper.com).

Congratulations to the top three winners in each category who will receive the following prizes based on their placement:
· Gitzo 6x carbon-fiber tripod with head
· Manfrotto MagFibre tripod with head
· Lastolite EzyBalance system
· Autographed edition of Barbara Bordnick's Searchings Volume III
· A selection of Legion Digital Fine Art paper

A special congratulations goes out to the Grand Prize Winner, Bob Schultz, who will receive a Gitzo 6x carbon-fiber tripod kit plus a four-day seminar package at ShootSmarter University.

Judges comments: "The first thing we noticed immediately was the topnotch printing. The quality of light is beautiful, drawing the eye into the print with vivid shadow detail. Look at the energy within the composition--the horizon intersecting with the vertical trees and diagonal fence. Again, the right paper for the right image."
