Quarter One – 2018 – Deadline

Judges Comments

Lots of entries in this category, to be sure, and most trended heavily toward the utilitarian as one might expect. The entries that made it to the final round showed a little “something different,” and with deference toward just good storytelling. Entries making it to the final round included the following: Amy Brothers from The Denver Post, and her work titled “The Stock Show Parade in downtown Denver;” with Tim Cook, from The Day in New London, and his work titled “Scenes in the snow;” and Jenna Watson from The Indianapolis Star, and her piece titled “Man who led Boone County deputy’s vigil says he owes Jacob Pickett his life.”
