2006 Winter Judges
- What I really liked about this image is the way the shadow represents an emotion of sensuality and then the image of the couple represents fun and enjoying the moment. I also liked the way the image's background was divided into black and white with the white or lighter part of the image against the black and the black part of the image against the white. Excellent symmetry.
The WPJA contest judges presented Matt Adcock, a Quintana Roo, Mexico 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.
