Judge Comments

This is a very strong cover, clearly solving lots of requirements. There’s a lot of copy! Still, coupled with the dual imagery of the soldier and the navy seal used as a dingbat, the type layout masterfully holds the page without looking too cluttered. No easy feat. Most importantly, this is a most appropriate cover targeting its audience.
