The APME has honored a photograph by Corey Perrine of the Naples Daily News as National MBR Photo of the Month for January 2015.
Thanks to Dan Marschka and staff at LNP Media Group for judging this month.
Here is what the judges had to say about the winning image:
"We’re always looking for that human interest photo that stays with us while we are flying through the editing process. This image is one of those found moments that softens the rough times and causes us to pause and simply smile."

Droves of people came out to have their canines romp through the new fenced play areas. Vendors had booths promoting their dog-centric businesses. The nearly 6 1/2-acre dog park at East Terry Street and Matheson Avenue cost an estimated $360,035. (AP Photo/Naples Daily News, Corey Perrine)
