First place phonics lesson grabbed us visually and the caption moved the picture to first place. Moments matter and storytelling moments are the best. Second has emotion on many different faces. Great job of looking for something other than a standard press conference picture. Third was a picture that raises the question of what is going on and the caption answered the question. Well done.
