Traces of Home took first for this category. The portraits proved to be strong both on their own and as a whole. The ACL Music fest came in second, the photographer did a good job covering the whole of the event and capturing many small important moments that are easily looked over. The Bee story took third, the photographer had good access and gave a good look into the daily operations of a unique profession.
