The judges didn’t think the submissions were strong enough to place, but awarded two Honorary Mentions.
Honorary Mention: Brianna Schroer, The Columbia Missourian, “A Moment in a movement”
The judges thought the most powerful photo of the package was presented well, but other photos seemed redundant and the headline didn’t fit the intensity of the movement.
Honorary Mention: Alex Kostiw, F News, “No Guns”
After seeing several other submissions from the same newspaper, the judges commented on how well the designers followed their publication’s style in illustrations. They said that it is a tough topic to illustrate and could have been overdone, but instead the designer kept it clean and clear.
