Multiple_Entry 1st Place 50 Points
Photographer: Chris Bergin, The Star Press
Image:mb_ckbm_01
Judges Comments:
We struggled with this category. There was no clear narrative to be found and the entries each broke down to sequential coverage of their events. Nice storytelling moments in each case, but they come out as a collection of photos, not a story.

The idea behind this entry is poignant but in the end, it became a really nice wedding photography session. We wanted to see more about Jesse’s life, not just a single day. Some lovely moments sprinkled throughout the take.

Again, a strong collection of storytelling images but there is no narrative.

Judges Comments:
Some nice scene setters but no story. What is special about these guys? What makes them different from the thousands of other hunters out there? We want more.

We liked the moment but this image may have placed with better cropping. The victim almost gets lost in the noise.
