The Associated Press Media Editors has honored this photograph as National Member Photo of the Month for May 2019

 

Thanks to Matthew Fortner, Sylvia Jarrus, Brad Nettles, Lauren Petracca and Andrew Whitaker at The Post and Currier  for judging this month. 

 

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

 

 There were so many good photos that the judges were split over favorites, but there was one that resonated with everyone. The image by Mike Simons might have a bit of lighter tenor for a flooding story, but the composition and moment come together nicely for an unexpected photograph.

 

Below is the link to all images entered for May and the winner is slide 22.
