West – September 2021 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

Weaker Category - most entries do not tell a narrative. Even the first winner would have been lower in a stronger months. There were however several photos that would have been excellent contenders for feature photo if submitted that way. All of the photos are good and captivating but non of them have a narrative arc. If I didn't read the cutline I wouldn’t have known what was going on with the stories so we only awarded first place and nothing else.
