Judges

This competition was judged by Winston-Salem Journal staff photographers Lauren Carroll and Andrew Dye with a bit of tie-breaking input from our photo editor Walt Unks. The Sports Feature category was the strongest, while the Multiple Photos category was the weakest with only three entries. So we encourage you to enter more multiple photo packages. We felt as though a few of the entries in General News would’ve been better as Feature photos.
