New England – May 2017 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

Again, we had a hard time picking 3 winners. Everything felt like a documentation of a scenario/event coverage with NO personal stories about people. We understand this is the route most papers are going with less­ and­ less time devoted to stories but just something to think about. First place had some very beautiful images and thought process but not much of a story line. Good seeing by the photographer. Second place also had a few different images that gave it a multiple feel but way too many pictures in the package. Fun subject though! Third also had too many photos and lacked the story as well as moments. A few gems in there but it would have been nice to see a few of these people back in their work environment as this was a team building exercise...maybe just a way to expand on the"story" part of it!
