Boulder, Colorado, USA, 8 March 2010—William Horton, a Boulder, Colorado, photographer, has won Camera Obscura Journal’s Outstanding Professional Photography Award, announced Monday, March 1. Along with publication in the upcoming issue of the journal, Mr. Horton received a monetary prize.

The semi-annual competition was open to professional and amateur photographers worldwide. The theme for this competition was the meaning of the word “Bond.”

“We received some great entries and narrowing down the finalists was a tough call,” said M.E. Parker, Editor in Chief of Camera Obscura.“The winner’s photograph as well as those of some of the finalists will appear in the journal in April,” added Mr. Parker.

When asked about the award, William said, “I am delighted and surprised by this award and the chance to share the poignant moment captured in this photograph.”
