Midwest – November 2019 – Feature/Single

Judges Comments

FIRST PLACE-We love the way the photographer found an unstaged moment which brings together the action of the foreground with the reaction in the background. It also breaks through stereotypes and finds a sweet moment in an otherwise somber setting. SECOND PLACE-The photographer didn’t rely solely on the exotic subject matter, but also worked to find an extraordinary composition with excellent use of color. THIRD PLACE-The caption shows great reporting and an attention to detail. The judges admire the photographers hussle at following this family to a defining moment.
