Every year I enter couple prints to the WPPI competition. What is WPPI?
“WPI (Wedding Photographers International) was founded in 1980, with one purpose in mind, to better meet the educational needs of wedding photographers. In the early 90’s, portrait photographers became a significant part of the association’s profile and WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) became reality.
WPPI has grown to be the largest trade show and convention in professional photography. As an association we’ve grown too, working hard to meet the needs of wedding, portrait, commercial, photojournalism and fine art photographers.”
I won a second place award at the Wedding and Portrait Photographer’s International Awards of Excellence competition.
The competition has thousands (if not tens of thousands) entries each year. Couple years ago I won first place in Wedding Humor category (on my first try) and this year I won second place in the much more competitive Wedding Photojournalism category, among the world’s best photographers. I feel truly honored with this selection!
Here is the winning image – in my opinion it captures that perfect moment!
