For the last two years we’ve had to announce the perennial winner of this category as “former” Indy photographer Chad Harder. Not this year. We’re proud to call him our own, once again, as Harder re-joined the Indy staff in February as both a writer and shooter. That means even more of his stunning images, fearless outdoor reporting and, most likely, firm grip on this award. That makes us even prouder.
