General News – Quite a lot of variety here, from car shows to musicians to political events. The 7-image Trump package stood out as the best coverage, although we would have cut the image of a cannon being fired. “Tearful Students” at a memorial for a suicide victim was a tender moment that’s awkward and difficult to photograph. “New Seats” in an auditorium was a wide overall, but we kept looking around in the photo and it told the story. Coming close to an award was “Bull Rider,” but it seemed more a sports photo than general news.
