All submissions are in for the Documentary Family Awards (DFA) first 2019 contest. Now it’s time to judge the best of the best.
Over a 4-week period, thousands of photos were submitted from 40 different countries. Renowned photographers Kholood Eid and Khalilah Hall and WSJ photo editor Parker Eshelman combed through each individual image, deciding on the 697 that are left for the final round.
On March 27, 2019, the DFA will stream online the final judging of the remaining 697 finalist images. This will include commentary from co-founders Kirsten Bethmann and Jenna Shouldice as well as guest judge Kholood Eid.
