Like father, like son. Or is it the other way around? For the first time in memory two people from the same family have won prizes in Sun Magazine's annual photo contest -- Baltimorean Karl G. Franz, a pre-press manager for a printing firm, and his son Max, a student at Archbishop Curley High School. But that wasn't the only surprise in this year's contest. For the first time, the grand prize went to an entrant in the 16 and Under category. That would be Max, who was pretty cool about his double good fortune. No screaming for joy over the phone. Just a murmur of surprise and a polite thank-you.
Max wins $250 for coming in first in the 16 and Under category and $1,000 for taking the grand prize. The other six winners each will receive $250 for their photos.
All winners whose pictures are on Kodak film will be entered in the Kodak International Newspaper Snapshot Awards contest to compete for a $10,000 grand prize and total prize money of $52,500. We'll be sure to tell you if any of them wins a prize in it.
Finally, we received well over 500 entries in this year's contest and we thank each and every one of you who entered.
