BOP (best of photojournalism) picture editing contest

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 are posted here.

I shot the video here and Chad Stevens did the great edit on deadline.

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.

When I wasn’t not judging, I was shooting shooting video and bothering the judges to see what they’re thinking.
