Judges Comments

Many entries would have benefited from tighter editing. The lack of having trained photo editors on hand, or another set of eyes on the entry, is evident in too many packages having repetitive images. First: Powerful emotion and quiet dignity elevated this image to the top. Second: The photographer was in the right place and the right time to capture a nice moment at what probably started as a routine event. Third: Subtle image that made judges want to know more. The news value of the situation elevated this to the top three.
