Judges Choice: Howard Schatz
I enjoyed the day of judging---it was a privilege. The great work in all areas was impressive. The struggles that "creatives" endure in Denver are no different from what is experienced in NYC. I could "feel" the clever ideas urging themselves forth and the effect of a client watering them down, playing it safe. It happens. Every so often the client let's go and marvelous work comes forth---I saw that all day on Saturday. The images I chose as my favorites were elegant photographs, beautifully composed. Congratulations to you all, and thanks so much for the wonderful honor of including me.
