    Judge Comment: These three pages show an admirable willingness to take different design approaches, but all anchored by a very traditional nameplate. A robust mix of headline fonts, but they work well together. Good use of ample white space. The photos in the entry were not as impressive as the design. The dominant Jan. 6 photo, while working with the overall layout, did not convey the chaos of the day, which was reflected in the headline.
