Judges Comments

The entries in this category elicited a lot of discussions. The biggest takeaway is the entries that were submitted needed a tighter edit. Even the winning entry should have been edited tighter (anywhere from 3-5 of the images could have been left out and the package would have been stronger). We linked the emotion of the facial expression and the tear for second. Because of the lack of tighter edits, the judges opted not to award third place in this category.
