  • Competition Comment: It was a pleasure to judge this category. The top 5 photos were the cream of the crop with high marks in all 4 criteria. The photos that scored lower, just didn't have the impact. It was good to see so many sports photos on the front page of the newspapers. So ofter they get pushed to the inside. Some of the photos could have scored higher if they were presented larger. Keep shooting!
