Thing we learned: Something we heard several times during the judges’ discussions of these categories was that a few entries took their concepts a bit too far. Don’t be afraid of simplicity in a layout and staying away from gimmicky design elements. Also, be wary when labeling photo illustrations — altered photographs can be mistaken for documentary photography when they aren’t prominently and clearly labeled.
