Judges Comments

1st - great caption that works well with the image. Smart storytelling,wonderful composition and use of color. It was an image we wanted to know more about without reading the caption, and then wanted to read the story after reading the caption. Picture lets your eyes wander around the whole frame. Well thought and well executed.- 2nd - Nice tender moment, captures the anguish and sensitivity that is so universal on account of both care giver and patient. - 3rd - Good use of aerial perspective, sweet moment with the dog looking over the shoulder. Less about the experience of the kids but more about the role of the dog in the relationship of therapy. Accentuates how well therapy dogs have to be trained.
