by Jamie Mastrio of Wilbraham

Judge Charlie Mansbach said: "The single word and three punctuation marks seem to animate this photo, explain the look on the face, the body language, an attitude, and all the wonders of emerging girlhood. With no title, or with a title giving only her name, I would spend much less time looking and would appreciate the photo far less."



"Hot Dog"
by Jill Henry of Revere

Judge Charlie Mansbach said, "The clever double use of the term makes the viewer look carefully at the photo. And the title comes across as affectionate, a celebration of the lad and all that sustains him."



"The Blizzard is Coming, The Blizzard is Coming"
by Patrick Gookin of the North End

Judge Charles Mansbach said, "I know: Paul Revere probably never said, 'The British are coming.' But this title still has fun with our historical lore and with our Boston landmarks. If the viewer doesn't recognize the snow-covered statue in the photo, the title furnishes a gentle nudge."

Here is the gallery of all Top 10 winners.
