Central – January 2018 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

Overall, a disappointing category with only four entries. There were stories entered in other categories which didn't place but might have placed here. First was a nice send-off to a community institution with the largest collection of nice pictures in any of the story entries. That said, it could have been edited tighter with an eye to more interaction and moments. Second was an interesting look at a fire in the dead of winter that would have also benefited from a tighter edit. Third was an MLK service that would have benefited from more intimate moments and emotion.
