1st Place, Storyteller, Jeff Scheid: Dancers perform during Mexican Independence Day in North Las Vegas.

Over the 10 years we’ve been holding the Focus on Nevada photo contest, a lot of things have changed. We’ve remixed categories, switched up judges, and watched a hundred cool photo trends come and go. But we’ve discovered one enduring truth: Between the visual splendor of Nevada and the boundless creativity of its photographers, we can never say that we’ve seen it all. Every year, surprise and delight arrive in the form of not just fresh images, but whole new ways of seeing our cities, our landscapes, and our people. Congratulations to all our winners, and thanks once again for opening our eyes.
