Only a few entries here. We say this every time we judge, but please! edit! your! multiple! picture! submissions! tighter! Not to be harsh, but if you are submitting ten pictures of a COVID vaccine clinic, then they need to be ten pictures that complement each other without redundancies to tell a story. There were, in fact, two vaccine stories submitted; we picked the one that had a stronger edit with more variety and a couple nice moments, though we still feel that one or two photos could have been eliminated to make the edit even cleaner.
