Why it Won: This story features a strong central character with a clear beginning, middle and end. It features dynamic and well-composed b-roll and makes great use of natural sound. The photographers did a good job taking the audience somewhere they've probably never been and the script flows seamlessly into the nicely constructed sound bites. Viewers don't learn about his unique situation until nearly midway through the story (save a surprise). The package takes you through Lorenzo's story one beat at a time and aims for the heart.
