Focus on the Story Awards 2018
We asked entrants in the inaugural Focus on the Story Awards to show us compelling stories that explored the human condition. Hundreds of entries answered the call but, after two rounds of judging, it was clear there was one photographer who rose above the crowd.
We wanted photos that best told the story of Aug. 21, 2017, the day of the Great American Eclipse. Winners and runners up to appear in Chasing the Great American Eclipse: Images and Essays From Totality, a photo book that will document the day’s events.
The width and breadth of the images submitted to our open call to appear in our photo book, UnPresidented: The Inauguration of Donald J. Trump and the People’s Response, was impressive: There were angry protestors. Jubilant Trump supporters. Rioters. Police. Defiant marchers. And signs. Lots of signs.
