National – June 2019 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

This was by far the strongest of the categories, which was heartwarming. Love to see that the power of visual storytelling is very much alive and kicking around the world! First place was emotionally draining - just what it should be, second place was a well-shot story that showed a lot of dedication from the photographer for being present for so many moments in this person's life and third place clearly describes the difficulty of life in Venezuela right now - devastating.
