2021 – 2nd Quarter – Picture Story/Essay

Judges Comments

Honorable Mention: Wesley Lapointe - Ok, this one is tricky. While none of the photos truly stand out as the lead, they're all just alright. This is the set we felt the photog put some massive amount of legwork in. All of us have either given or gotten the “heatwave” assignment at one point and to see this many places from one person, really shows their dedication. Hold onto that dedication and keep working towards breaking boundaries, getting closer to people, moving around the image more to find different angles. Keep pushing but don't lose the dedication.
