Judges Comments

“The judges were pleased to see multiple entries on this topic, which has been historically undercovered. This piece, which told a personal story of one missing woman, also began to tackle the larger systemic issues and the breadth of the problem. We hope to see more visual journalists work on thoughtful coverage of people and issues that have been historically under-represented.”
