Not many entries this time around. It was hard-fought on position placement among the judges. All entries could use a tighter edit as there were photos that seemed more as a filler than part of the story. Commendations to second place for owning a comfortable relationship with the subject to produce more candid moments across this story.
Judges: Dan Busey/Decatur Daily, Jeronimo Nisa/Decatur Daily
