Mid-Atlantic Region – February 2016 – Feature/Single

Judges Comments

Lots of images that we felt were very much planned events (ie. general news) even if they were lighter we still felt they did not fit the found moment/slice of life feeling we would prefer. The winners were those that met the standard. First place was a great found moment within news coverage, well composed, funny and poignant. Second place read quickly and easily and brough a smile to our faces. Third was a great visual composition. We would have preferred, as journalists, to have the name of a single, identifiable, subject in a feature photo. We also liked the photo of the police giving directions to the passing motorist ... it was probably the most Found Moment in the whole category ... but a lack of IDs to round out the storytelling aspect bumped it off our top three.
