Judges Comments

The first place entry is a well-shot story of a neighborhood’s longtime residents dealing with the specter of gentrification. There are a wide variety of images shot in different locations and time. The second place entry did provide a narrative, but could have used more depth to the storytelling. The rest of the entries were general news assignments that should have been placed in that category. This was a shame as there was some strong work.
