Wedding photographer Jeanie Ow, was awarded 10th place for photo 53236 in the Details category for the WPJA's 2006 Fall.
The WPJA contest judges presented Jeanie Ow, a British Columbia, Canada wedding photographer, with this Master Piece Award as recognition for top wedding photojournalism in the industry.
The leading documentary wedding photographers in the world enter their best photos to the Wedding Photojournalist Association's photography competitions. They want their wedding reportage photographs to be evaluated and selected by some of the most notable and respected working picture editors and photojournalists in the news industry (these are not wedding photographers or other WPJA members judging their work). Winning these competitions is a true accomplishment for a wedding photographer.
2006 Fall Judges
- I saw a good share of bubble pictures in the all images submitted in this contest, and of all of them, I think this one is the most successful. The bubble is in just the right spot, and is the focal point of the frame. The bubble also appears to have some kind of 3-D effect, as if it is raising out of the plane of the photograph itself. Very cool.
