Physical and mental abuse of a home she thought she would never be able to leave behind her, an unidentified woman talks with a tear about the relief of safety at the Safe Harbor shelter home for women and children.

Judges’ comments for the category


2nd Place - This package holds together well, edited well with little repetition. Although we think the last image in the package is strong, we do wonder what happened to the detail in the children. 3rd Place - Good diversity of shots out of a standard concert event.
