Lifestyle photography proved challenging to our members for the month of May. The image a laughing baby being tickled by dad was the judges favorite. Congratulations to Brittany Blake for earning a WPS Award Badge.

Dave still has a commanding lead for the POY Prize but Brittany jumped to 5th in this round. The hardware is still up for the taking. 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.
