By the book all <img> tags require to have alt tag. e.g. <img src="cat.gif" alt="My cat Tommy" /> This alt text is shown if image is not load for some reason - e.g. text only browsing, mobile browsing, broken picture and so on. This alt text is also shown when mouse cursor is over the picture. This alt text is also used from modern search engines as picture title. Sure not all images really need alt tag.

You have 17 images with no alt attribute. It's good to have alternate text (alt) attributes to all you images.
