    Judge Comment: Different photos. Liked the overall shots.
  • Competition Comment: A lot of great entries. I really liked the fair photo stories, but everyone kept submitting shots of people looking at the camera, which sells papers but doesn't look that great. There were lots of great shots in these entries. I chose ones that seemed to tell a story, had emotion and/or great shots.
