Thank you for raising this very interesting point, Anatanana, and for the
photographers it is certainly nice to get feedback on their work -
especially when the photo did not make it into the final top 15.
For the 2021 edition: we don't have the capacity at the moment to create
the desired full jury report again. It is not to be underestimated how much
time goes into compiling these. In our grant request for the upcoming year
the international team has requested to have a budget to meet in person
again, also to work on a more long term strategy for WLM for the upcoming
years. This would include reviewing the way we document things, and we will
certainly take your observations into account.
@Bodhi: thank you, the help is appreciated.
