Judges Comments

Most entries in this category needed much stronger editing to weed out repetitive and/or weak images that didn’t further visual storytelling. First - Strongest by far, series showed strong personalities, touching, intimate moments and some humor. Although we felt there were a few images that could have been edited out, the overall story was compelling. Second - Series did a good job trying to show unique moments of an often-documented subject. Good variety of perspectives, personalities made this series stand out.
