The judges went through 2 boxes of Krispy Kreme Donuts, 12 cans of Dr. Pepper, 6 cans of Sprite, 6 bottles of Snapple, 2 pounds of M & Ms, a jar of peanuts, a 32 oz. bag of Frittos, an order of the Loft's Island Fried Chicken and Teriyaki Beef and a half dozen oranges and apples.

The judges this year included Wally Skalij (Los Angeles Times), Rick Rickman (Newsport), Peter Read Miller (Sports Illustrated), Brad Mangin (freelance photographer), Ronal Taniwaki (Nikon) and Robert Hanashiro, USA TODAY.

Also lending a hand were Myung J. Chun (for video taping the proceedings) and Robbin Goddard (for advice and still photography) from the Los Angeles Times.

This contest, the only general sports photography contest held in the U.S., was made possible by the generosity of several sponsors. The Sports Shooter staff would like to thank Nikon, Roberts Distributors, Samy's Camera, Penn Camera, Lowepro and Fujifim.

Thanks goes out to Jody Grober from Roberts who got Lexar and the Alta-Mira Group involved and Jeff Snyder from Penn for Minds@work's donation.
