Yes. What about the outstanding work of Frank Becerra??!!

Becerra's a wonderful photographer, but the article says they chose the awards from members who entered their photos throughout the year and won ribbons. Maybe he doesn't do that because he's busy being out there shooting for a living. Maybe some of these people also work as photographers but found the time to enter the contests. I don't think it's an oversight - he wasn't in it.
