South Region – January 2016 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

Our first place selection takes us on a journey in the story. This is what made it first place for us. It features several powerful, intimate moments that helped propel the story forward. Second place was shot well, but was not as compelling as first because of sequencing and editing. We would eliminate a few frames (Rabbit Allergies, Cow shot "all things are possible to those who believe", and end the story with the boy pulling the goat. We loved the frame of the boy moving his hog though the evening light. In third place, the photo of the girl with her guitar really made the story. We think it could have been more prominently sequenced within that story.
