This category had 18 entries. A good number for competition, but unfortunately the majority of images were fair to poor. First place stood out as very visually interesting. Good news photographs are often made not by being handed fascinatingly visual assignments (color, emotion, action, etc.), but by a photographer being able to see and use elements in the environment to give an appealing visual that documents a moment. This is what first place shows is possible. Second place was recalled quickly by the judges. Good timing and interesting moment in daily life not always seen/thought of.
