Judges Comments

This is the only category, except for picture story, where an entry of multiple pictures won. The Pope’s visit to Panama was second place. As we said in the picture story category, there needs to much better editing. Don’t have pictures repeating information. The weak pictures hurt the overall edit. The first place and the others all have some news value and moments. We are seeing a glimpse into the subject’s lives.
