Mid-Atlantic – January 2024 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

First place would have held strong even if there were more entries. It really told the story of a multi-day moving event with a variety of scenes and angles. We liked that you got the political rallies and events in a fresh way as well as the context of what was going on in the area at the same time. Other entries we felt didn't tell a cohesive story, maybe it was a group of pretty pictures but what does that really inform our readers of?
