Focus on the Story is looking for images that explore the human condition, allowing for a broad interpretation of the emotions, struggles, conflicts and needs that shape human existence. Among the factors judges will consider is how the images tell the story of an individual or group struggle against challenges (whether they are natural, political or economic); shine a light on marginalized or disenfranchised segments of society; or bring attention to people, places, events or things that are making a positive difference in their communities, region or the world, in general.
