CPOY Award - Evan Cobb | Independent Photographer & Videographer | Salt Lake City

Award of Excellence - Sports Action

Well, I got the news that an image I submitted into the 72nd College Photographer of the Year was selected as an Award of Excellence in the Sports Action division. I have sat in the dark room that CPOY takes place in and watched thousands of images be sorted through to identify the best work from college photographers all around the world. This year, I wasn't able to attend the event in person, but I was able to listen to the screencasts after they had been posted online. It was so awesome to hear what the judges had to say about my images.

Big shout out to the folks who put CPOY together. I know how much work it is. Also, major props to all the other amazing photographers who entered. What a neat profession to be a part of.
