BOP (best of photojournalism) picture editing contest
March 31, 2007
I’ve been an alternate judge this weekend for BOP, so I’ve stepped in when one of the judges has a conflict in the form of pages from their publication rising to the top of the list. Thus far that’s been Elizabeth Krist, a picture editor at National Geographic or William Snyder, the former Director of Photography (and 4 time Pulitzer prize winner) at the Dallas Morning News. The other two judges are Bonnie Jo Mount from Hampton University and John Glen from the Atlanta Constitution.
It’s been a sobering experience: if your visual “sweater” has a loose thread in the form of weak or extra images in a picture page, layout or spread, these clever and perceptive folks will find it and quickly unravel it. The results will be posted here.
When I’m not judging, I’ve been been shooting video and bugging the judges to see what they’re thinking.
