The APME has honored the photograph below as National Member Photo of the Month for May 2017.
Thanks to Seacoast Media Group's Rich Beauchesne, Deb Cram, Ioanna Raptil and John Huff for judging this month.
Here is what the judges had to say about the winning image:
"The stark photograph of a young boy trying to remain composed despite the emotional pain on his face moved us all. The photographer's angle and timing, paid off with this powerful image in a political environment challenging local and state law enforcement."
Below is the link to all images entered for May and the winner is slide 16.
