Judges Comments

Again, this category had a few strong pics entered with multiples downgrading the overall impact. Just enter your best shots. First - Aslight juxtaposition between the scene and the wording on the woman’s shirt caught the judges eyes, and interest, for this category.Second - Although a tighter crop and lifesaving measures might have brought more interest to this shot the judges felt it was a sizable crash making way to importance in the daily news. Third - The newsworthiness of this tragedy enhances the need for this shot to be published. The photographer handled this with good sensitivity.
