 APME April 2013 Member Photo of the Month


The APME has honored the above photograph as National Member Photo of the Month for April 2013.

Thanks to Robert St. John, Jeremiah Bogert and Calvin Hom at the Los Angeles Times for Judging this month

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

"The immediacy of this image places you in the moment, instead of the aftermath. The viewer almost feels like they are there when the bomb exploded. The officer running on the left looks as if he could be chasing a bomb suspect or rushing to another victim. Strong foreground, great composition with three police officers forming a classic triangle. Powerful background contributing to the sense of place. Cleaner image than the other bombing photos, an instant read. This iconic image will forever define the domestic terror attack."
