Northwest – July 2020 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

Such slim pickings in this category. We were thankful for the editing of all three entrants that we didn't have to slog through a dozen frames from each. In the end only the House Move rose to the standards of telling a story with a variety of quality images. No matter how it was edited the hiker photos did not constitute a story, and the series on the mennonite family lacked variety or anything like a storytelling moment. House Move could have been one or two photos fewer and been stronger, but we liked the variety of images, the use of light and several really nice storytelling moments pulled it all together.
