  • Place Name: First Place
    Contestant Name: North Coast Journal
    Entry Title: Measure R
    Entry Credit: Jonathan Webster
    Judge Comment: A thoughtful way to represent the information with pictures. I'd have liked to have seen each job title avatar be a little more distinct (perhaps giving the chiefs the axe, the captains the hose and the firefighters the victim), but it's still an excellent graphic.
  • Place Name: Second Place
    Contestant Name: North Coast Journal
    Entry Title: The Cost of Childhood Trauma
    Entry Credit: Jonathan Webster
    Judge Comment: Visually appealing and an interesting way to organize the information. I wish the blue and orange lines from the initial circles lined up with the respective lines in the indicator graphs.
  • Place Name: Third Place
    Contestant Name: Gilroy Dispatch
    Entry Title: Gilroy tops county Covid infection rate statistics
    Entry Credit: Dan Pulcrano
    Judge Comment: The graph is attractive and easy to read. However, it's very simple to create and the newspapers logo doesn't need to be part of the graphic.
  • Place Name: Fourth Place
    Contestant Name: The Trinity Journal
    Entry Title: COVID-19 regional numbers
    Entry Credit: Tracy Reiner
    Judge Comment: The chart is interesting to the eye but it's not organized in any obvious way which makes it hard to compare the county figures at a glance.
  • Place Name: Fifth Place
    Contestant Name: The Capistrano Dispatch
    Entry Title: San Juan Capistrano COVID Cases
    Entry Credit: Zach Cavanagh, Chelsie Rex
    Judge Comment: The X and Y axis numbers are very small and hard to read. The total chart/graph is the least "graphical" of the entries.
