None of the entrants followed the complete rules regarding a POY entry, but judges decided to award 2 places regardless. 1st place showed powerful images but there was a question as to what constituted a picture story within the entry. 2nd place showed humor, variety and range. It gave a sense that the photographer has a vision, even if some images were weak.
