National – November 2019 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

First place stood out here. A strong cohesion throughout, great composition, color and mixture of moments. It's clear the photographer was committed to the documentation of their experience on a deeper level. The same can be said for the second place as well, in that the photographer clearly was dedicated to sharing the story on a level far superior than the superficial. The same for the final story, just not as strong aesthetically as the others. Nonetheless, it's a really nice story with a solid commitment of time investment from the photographer.
