First place jumped right out - it was the only true news story, something that we all wished more students would spend time on. (Not that we don't like or see a need for feature/profile pieces, but news photography is our bread and butter). This did an excellent job of telling the larger story of unemployment through one individual. The judges felt that there was a true narrative arc in this piece, moving the viewer through her story. The second place story was very nicely shot, though the mix of stills into the video was a bit startling and we felt it would be stronger without those.
