    Judge Comment: Every element on these pages is in harmony with the whole. Modern, uncluttered design and a muted palette allow the headlines and photos to work their magic.
  • Place Name: Second Place
    Contestant Name: C-ville Weekly
    Entry Title: C-VILLE covers
    Entry Credit: Max March
    Judge Comment: A irreverent and risky approach makes these pages fun. The statues front suffered from type obscuring the middle of the photos. The Real Estate teasers really detract from the overall tone.
  • Place Name: Third Place
    Contestant Name: Inside NoVa/Prince William
    Entry Title: May 13, June 10, Sept. 23

    Judge Comment: The nameplate is clean and modern, but the rest of the page has too many elements fighting for readers' attention.
