What Judges Look for in a Photo Competition
DaphneDaphné Anglès
Picture Editor, The New York Times, Paris

"You need to grab the jurors' attention from the start and hold it firmly through to the last image. Editing is crucial. Each photograph has to be strong and the sequencing needs to make sense, from a story-telling and an aesthetic point of view. Avoid repetitions. You might need to say goodbye to some of your 'darlings'! A good text with the pictures is short, concise, to the point, informed, descriptive. I find it helps to imagine you are speaking to a smart child who would rather be outside playing with friends: you have very little time to tell the story and explain WHY it matters. The same holds true for captions. 1st sentence: describe the image. 2nd sentence: why and how this image fits into the body of work."

Photo Editor, Curator, Consultant, Knight-Wallace Fellow, Brooklyn, NY

"Remember the world around your frame needs to be in your frame. A great picture actually distills 360 degrees and condenses space and emotion into an experience that registers long after you look away from the image. Think when you photograph and don't confuse speed with purpose. Finding and capturing these moments means the photographer is always on a path to discovery and this process forms an essential aesthetic and hopefully unique voice. One picture is a piece of a whole and I am forever curious about the many elements (photographs) that create an entire story. Present your work with range and find rhythm that speaks to not only detail in an image but also to an emptiness, one that is full of considerations of consequence. Think metaphorically of the power of music when there is  a beat of silence. Extraordinary photographs know this silent note as well. Remember that a picture is more than punctuation.  Photographs are verbs, active, evolving and always cogitating. What informs a picture is often as important as the picture. When experience and process are powerfully channeled in the photograph(s), the image becomes a portal revealing depth and nuance about moment that reverberates through time."
