New England – February 2022 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

Very weak category, both winners rose to the top quickly. entries included busy backgrounds, items sticking out of people's heads, lack of emotion. No third place awarded 1st: Nice image of a young boy celebrating at home after an extended bout in the hospital with COVID. 2nd: Nice use of space and color for this portrait after a press conference.
