Chad is taking a solid point lead over the field for the POY Prize. The race for the hardware is heating up! Remember, the point system is simple. An image will receive 25 points per star, which represents a judge’s selection. Each month four judges will comb over all the photos and provide a star to each image they deem worthy. An image will receive an award badge if it gains three or more stars. Information about our judges can be found here. Below are the current point standings.
