1st: The clear winner in this category. Strong collection of images showing daily life in this town. The photographeras report with the subject is evident. 2nd: Interesting and creative way to illustrate the subjects of this series. Each image had an extensive caption providing information about each person photographed. The cohesiveness also tied the images together in a very clear way. 3rd: A nice variety of images from a routine annual event. Both behind the scenes and on the catwalk images are highlighted. The lack of cutlines hurt this entry and almost kept it from placing.
