Judges’ comments for the category

The essays that stood out against the others were more effective at giving a sense of storytelling. American Idol provided a nice variety of story, humor and moments. The stadium essay was the only essay with a sense of narrative progression and many images were well shot. Grandpa Joe was the only essay with a personal connection, but all the images were very similar.
