Rotary Magazine 2021 Photo Awards recounts how it was a challenging year for photographers.
Once the pandemic hit, travel plans had to be changed or cancelled. More photos than usual were taken close to home, sometimes as close as the backyard and many photos captured the way COVID-19 has transformed our world and our daily lives.
Photojournalist Barbara Davidson, judged the photographs with an exacting eye. “The images that stand out invite one to linger on the photograph and successfully inspire an emotional response.”
