    Entry Title: Playing with fire
    Entry Credit: Dylan Engel
    Judge Comment: Interesting photos and some nice detail shots. However, I would have liked to see cutlines for the photos to help tell the story.
  • Place Name: Third Place
    Contestant Name: MSU/Mankato - The Reporter
    Entry Title: Minnesota State gets ready for the 2022 Frozen Four in Boston
    Entry Credit: Mansoor Ahmad
    Judge Comment: Interesting angles and mix of close and long shots. Cutlines under the photos would have helped tell the story better.
  • Competition Comment: Some nice photos here. The biggest thing I noticed was that only one entry had cutlines. Without them, it's tough to tell a story. Also, what was missing in some entries was having variety in the photos, such as close, long, high, low, etc, rather than just a collection of photos.
