Now that our friends at Kansas Pregame have released their 2016 edition digitally, we can officially announce that Susan Goodwyn has been awarded the Grand Prize for the 2015 Kpreps Friday Night Photo Contest.

Goodwyn’s winning photo captures a unique perspective of St. Thomas Aquinas kicker Blake Zuniga’s point-after-touchdown against Blue Valley North. Aquinas went on beat Blue Valley North 42-13 in a Week 2 Eastern Kansas League showdown.  Both the Saints and Mustangs would go on to reach the state playoffs in their respective classifications.

“Since its inception, Kpreps has made it a point to feature the work of photographers around the state through the Friday Night Photo Contest,” said Kpreps’ Managing Partner Matt Gilmore. “We continue to be impressed with the number and quality of photos we receive, and we feel the photos play an integral part in telling the story of high school football in our state.”

“Selecting a grand prize winner has become one of the more difficult decisions we make each year,” said Kpreps’ Managing Partner Andy Wachter. “We enjoy providing the platform to feature the work of some of our state’s best photographers, and we feel it is really special for high school athletes to be captured in such brilliant work.”

Goodwyn wins $500 cash for her 2015 winning photograph. The winning photo was announced and featured (page 42) in the 2016 edition of Kansas Pregame Magazine.
