The building and several others in-and-around Ferguson were burned during protests after a grand jury decided not to indict a white police officer in the killing of unarmed, black 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Thanks to Ben Gray at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution for judging this month.

 

Here is what Ben had to say about the winning image:

 

“The photographer did a fantastic job of capturing the destruction of the riots in Ferguson and the militaristic response of police with an image that looked like it was shot in a war zone rather than the midwest. This photo has an immediate, visceral punch to it."

Thanks to Nicole Frugé at the San Francisco Chronicle for judging this month.

 

Here is what Nicole had to say about the winning image:

 

“It’s a energetic frame, with a nice use of composition, light, and a great moment."
