National – August 2018 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

The first place story punched us in the face. The emotion captured along with the composition and variety make this story successful. 2nd: The dramatic light, artistic angles and the way the photographer puts the audience into the scene provides an intimate look into the South Side High School football team. 3rd: Subtle moments and a keen eye capture the nuanced journey of life after a disaster.
