  • Place Name: First Place
    Contestant Name: Long Beach Post
    Entry Title: Apartment Complex Fire
    Entry Credit: Fernando Haro Garcia
    Judge Comment: While all entries submitted had very good to excellent technical quality, 79% lacked visual impact. Those entries consisted of people on strike, protest marches and other group shots that indicated little initiative on the part of the photographer. This photo was well composed with dramatic subject matter.
  • Place Name: Second Place
    Contestant Name: The Modesto Bee
    Entry Title: The Chavez family'a grief and anger
    Entry Credit: Andy Alfaro
    Judge Comment: While all entries submitted had very good to excellent technical quality, 79% lacked visual impact. Those entries consisted of people on strike, protest marches and other group shots that indicated little initiative on the part of the photographer. Well cropped, strong visual impact. I wasn't able to view Part 2 as the link wanted me to subscribe to the newspaper.
  • Place Name: Third Place
    Contestant Name: Long Beach Post
    Entry Title: Jacob Lansdale
    Entry Credit: Thomas R. Cordova
    Judge Comment: While all entries submitted had very good to excellent technical quality, 79% lacked visual impact. Those entries consisted of people on strike, protest marches and other group shots that indicated little initiative on the part of the photographer. This photo took advantage of dramatic lighting and was well composed.
  • Competition Comment: Wasn't sure where I could enter comments for the non-winners. I know those entering would appreciate a comment or two even if they were not among the final three.
