NY/International – September 2017 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

Overall, this was a weak category. Only the first place entrant told much of a story. The others seemed like daily assignments that were way too loosely edited. Both 2nd and 3rd places would have benefited from much, much tighter edits. We were surprised to see so many poorly­written captions across all the categories. Incorrect spelling, bad grammar and punctuation problems were spotted everywhere.
