Mid-Atlantic – February 2018 – Spot News

Judges Comments

There were only four entries in this category, two of which were from the same event. First place captures a moment in the chaos of rioting fans celebrating the Eagles' Super Bowl win. Second place frames a firefighter inside the building within the context of the scene and the damage to the building. We chose not to award third place because of the redundancy of one entry to another image. We felt the fourth entry would better belong in General News as part of the coverage of planned celebrations following the Eagles' Super Bowl win.
