The first place set of images took spot news to a different level. It was a graphic, inside look at the resort shooting. Many visual storytelling techniques gave viewers a great variety. Second place was composed well and offered a different spot news image you don’t see very much. Third place was clean and in one image showed the spot news/flooding and the struggle with having to wait for the water to recede.
