Judges Comments

Well clearly the courthouse shooter is the hands down winner of the century. Not many photojournalists have looked a shooter right in the eye and lived to photograph OR tell about it. Well done. Second place is a devastating image of police officers holding back a father from seeing to his son who had been shot and third place shows a white man threatening a black youth with a baseball bat in the street. Clearly we have work to do in this country. Well done all.
