The "Best Action Photo" is any image depicting game action on within the arena or stadium holding the event.

"No Pro, No College" are images from a sporting event that does not involve a professional or major college team. This could be high school, junior college or even little league events. The images can be action or feature.

"Best No Ball" is a feature category, but can be any image that does not have a ball (or puck) in it. This includes jubilation and dejection images as well as portraits.

Our "Student Portfolio" category was introduced in the last contest and was extremely popular. Photographers who are full-time students or are students currently serving an internship are eligible to enter this category. Students should submit up to 5 images and they will be judged on technical skill, diversity and impact.

"The Photo of the Year" entries will be gathered from the winners of the other categories and will receive the top prize from Sports Shooter.

All entries must have been taken during 2001.

Sports Shooter wants to thank all of the sponsors of the annual contest. We also hope that all of you subscribers and readers support these sponsors.
