Is there a contest for candids, or photojournalism? What do you think of these images?

I have been out of town for several days so I am sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. On the regional/district and national level there is no catergory for candid or photojournalism. There is currently photographic open, album, or commercial. Next year the catergories will change but there still will not be a specified candid of PJ catergory.

I understand how you are pulled to the emotional feeling of these images. The things that you need to look at for a competition image needs the emotional feeling plus taking into consideration all of the 12 elements. Watch for light direction, it will add impact to the image and sculpt the subject giving it a more 3D feel. Also watch for distractions in the backgound that pull the viewers eye away from your main subject. If you need a copy of the 12 elements go to http://www.ppa.com/competitions/international/12elements.php
Hope this helps
