We thought the Prison Riot was one of the best things we have seen in any of the categories and for that matter some of the best work we have seen recently. Well done! Amazing job taking the access you were given and pushing yourself to produce some amazing images that bring us into a place most of us can't go. A tremendous role photojournalism can play. We enjoyed lingering with this work and soaking it in. 2nd place was also time well spent and very worthy of being a 2nd place although there was no third entry. Strong work in this category, we were happy to see these.
