Judges
Staffers from the Detroit News including: David Coates, photographer; Robert Houlihan, Director of Photography; Chris Farina, photo editor; and Dale Young photographer judged the contest. Our general impression was that it was a real pleasure working on your contest, particularly with the online judging features. The software is well thought-out and easy to use. Multiple picture entries were generally too long. Several could have been much stronger fewer images. The story on the high school kids should be followed for the rest of the year and turned into a really strong package. Thanks for thinking of us!
