Juror’s Awards:

First Place: Sean Lande “The Storm Before The Calm”.
Sean Lande’s image “The Storm Before The Calm” is a moody, poetic treat that guides our imaginations into an striking noir that has endless interpretations, thus making this an image that continues to grow, shift and change with every viewer.
Second Place: Jim Rohan “False Awakening” 
Jim Rohan has been a frequent contributor and award winner to Plastic Fantastic in years past and his image “False” is right up there with the best of his offerings. This cinematic scene of a woman looking out onto a long, distant road evokes a multitude of emotions along and a captivating narrative.    
Third Place: Lilyan Aloma “In Between”
A whirlwind of kinetic energy sweeps through this lyrical image via the use of a alluring technical approach that provides an engaging metaphorical delight.
Honorable Mention:  Bob Gervais “Bruce Cow Spaceship Mexico”.
Another frequent contributor and former winner, Bob Gervais, offers yet another look into his quirky, unique vision of the world. This time it’s a man and his cow strolling across the field with an odd, interstellar shaped water tower in the background that makes this image even more out of this world.
