Tragedy in Quebec: Lac Mégantic was chosen for entry because of the stunning photograph.

Families and first-responders were still searching for loved ones and answers after an unmanned train full of fuel destroyed the downtown core of this small Quebec town. An aerial photograph, which ran the full width of the page, showed the terrible scale of the devastation. The charred wreck of the train can be seen to the left of a town that was now flattened by the force of the explosion.
