2nd Place Portrait: Kristen Zeis, Virginian-Pilot–Nichole Credle, is photographed at her Suffolk, Va., home on Wednesday, August 31, 2016. Credle signed a contract with Sea-Thru, a Virginia Beach, Va., window company in June 2016 and has yet to receive her windows. She’s battling the company in an effort to retrieve a $2,278 deposit for preach of contract. Credle’s current windows are leaking and she’s worried about the risk of mold, which she says would result in health issues for her children, who are asthmatic. Credle is photographed with her children, Collin Credle Jr., 5, and Hailey, 6.
3rd Place Portrait: M. Scott Mahaskey, Politico–Portrait of Bishop Calvin Woods, Sr. of Shiloh Baptist Church, Birmingham, Alabama, photographed Feb. 19, 2016. Commenting on this yearÕs election, Woods said: ÒItÕs a mess in a way. When we sow the wind, we reaped a whirlwind (referring to biblical verse Hosea 8:7). So we canÕt blame anybody but ourselves for that. So we have to deal with it. Some of us are too wishy-washy when it comes to justice and things of that nature.Ó
