Judges Comments

The spot news category sparked conversation among the judges, as the eventual winners were all quite different. The graphic appeal, lighting and image composition elevated the first place winner. The inclusion of the shopping carts added relevant information for the viewer. Second place is a easily read, well-composed and helped by an informative caption. Third place is an emotional, telling photograph captured under difficult lighting conditions and challenging situational dynamics.
