The Wedding Photojournalist Association's True Love Captured (TLC) contests follow a long tradition of WPJA “emotion” categories dating all the way back to 2002, putting a premium on the emotional content of your work. Please submit images illustrating true love and emotion that were shot from your heart. The outpouring of love that you captured can be between two people or even among a group of family and friends expressing their mutual affection, admiration, and devotion.
Up to 10 submissions can be entered from each member per contest.
Entries must have been taken at a real wedding event.
These contests are only for work created at weddings in 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019, and so on...anything prior to 2022. Save your 2023 work for the regular WPJA contests coming later this year.
Submitted images may NOT have been previously awarded from a WPJA contest, including the Honor Awards with green badges.
Please, no Portraits or Details.
You can enter images in a TLC contest without affecting WPJA’s annual image limit for regular contests.
Those TLC entries that have been recognized by two or more of the three-judge panel will receive an award/badge from the WPJA.
