First place was excellent. It gave readers and in-depth look at what the life of a Angelman Syndrome person and the people that love them is like. The photographer told a sensitive and complete story. Second place conveyed the feeling of frustration and futility in the jail while waiting for bail. It was an especially good job considering you couldn't show inmates faces. Third place was a beautiful look at a church tradition.
