Judges Comments

This category was a strong category. The first-place image was a strong collection of images that captured the beginning stages of the pandemic in Peru. Some really compelling, well-composed images but wish it would have been edited tighter. Second place again was a well-shot image that involved a lot of time and patience to go beyond just covering the story and making me feel the story. Again, we wish it was edited tighter with less repetitive images. Third place was a great capture from a political event. There were many contenders in this category but those with multiple images either should enter the best image as a single or edit much tighter.
