The WPJA contest judges presented Bartosz Jastal, a Poland 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.
2008 Q1 Judges
- Running...emotion...fun...energy...all into one...when they can't remember this will help spur them to remember what it was like to be young or somewhat young. Dont think that it's put together as well as some of the other pictures, but I liked the energy and feeling.
