Here is what the judge had to say about the winning image:
“As these types of pictures go, this is one of the best I have seen. This type of situation is happening too often in this country. It is also a terrible situation for all involved – including the photographer. To capture the moment this way is a skill that includes journalistic storytelling, tact, and empathy for the victims.”
