  • Competition Comment: There were a lot of entries with no captions, which was disappointing. There were also many with overlapping photos, or too many photos in the story/on the page. Editing it tighter would have strengthened many of the entries. Too many photos that are identical weakens a story. Ditto for identical photo sizes on a page.
