Judges Comments

  • This is the kind of moment that wins awards. Photojournalism is essentially the pursuit of truth portrayed through universal narratives - moments. When a single image can present a "story" as strongly as this, then there is no doubt that the photographer has accomplished one of the premiere tenets of photojournalism.
