Preliminary Round Judges
Our guest judges spent many hours reviewing each submission we received, narrowing their favourite single images and photo series down to a shortlist for the final round of live judging. We are thankful to have had them join our team and look forward to seeing what they selected to move forward to the live-stream portion of the Documentary Family Awards.
