Award Winner at the International AG|WPJA Contest30 Dec 2012, by Wedding Photographer in
I have been a member of the WPJA (Wedding Photojournalist Association) since 2009 and have received WPJA awards for my wedding photographs on several occasions. The WPJA has a separate division, the AG|WPJA or “Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association” which, besides maintaining the WPJA’s standards on uncontrived wedding journalism, focuses primarily on artistic aspects and promoting “Fine Art Wedding Photojournalists”. The AG|WPJA holds contests every quarter in which its members from all over the world take part. With so many thousand photo entries there’s always a certain element of luck involved in receiving an award and this time luck was definitely on my side.
I am thrilled and honoured to have received an award in the category “Weather” for my photo of Stephanie coming out of the church in what felt like a force 10 gale. This means I can now officially adorn my website with the AG|WPJA’s “International Award Winning Wedding Photographer” logo.
Congratulations, of course, to all my colleagues around the globe who also received an award.
