The above photo is both of the APME Member Photo of the Month for July and the member Photo of the Year.

Here is a slide show of all the photos nominated for July. No. 87 is the July and Photo of the Year winner.

 The judges for the APME Member Photo of the Year were: Mike Fender, Indy Star Dan Marschka, Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era in PA Jeff Knox, Daily Herald, IL

Quotes from the Judges:

"After editing down to our favorites and initiating discussion, we all realized that the Sangosti image represented another level of sight. This photograph conveys an emotional connection that compliments the visual dynamic, and reveals Sangosti's acute awareness of the moment. The striking visual cues include relationships between Mrs. Blunk's hair and the rainbow, the stars in her flag which compliment the stripes on her husband's casket, the red and white stripes on the tarmac, the soldiers' direction of sight relative to Mrs. Blunk's, the grey sky, and the repeating elements of black and white. This is a powerfully haunting image of tragedy.:
