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."

In the December contest, the winner was Austin Anthony of The Daily News, for a shot of a high school football title game.
