Envelope, please --- (drumroll)
CONGRATULATIONS, PIA ZOBEL LOPEZ!
There were many GORGEOUS entries, all beautiful in their own right, but hers stood out because of the good use of color, selection of photos ("each told a story" said the associate editor and brand manager) and the design. The simple embellishments were well chosen, and well placed, so they enhanced rather than distracted from the photo.
The art director was particular impressed by the creative circle cropping, adding: "Good sense of design -- balance, proportion, and use of white space that led the eye to the most important elements."
