The APME has honored the attached photograph as National MBR Photo of the Month for January 2016.
Thanks to Joe Hermitt and staff at The Patriot-News for judging this month.
Here is what the judges had to say about the winning image:
"We liked it because we felt it was a compelling image of a difficult situation to photograph; people watching television. The image was thought out and well-composed, taking the viewer beyond the obvious, giving a glimpse into the lives of the subjects."
Below is the link to all images entered for January and the winner is slide #5.
