2008 Q2 Judges


  • This image is dynamic, fun, creative and well executed. The slight tilt adds to the spontaneous feel. And details such as the sand falling off the foot at right and the pointed finger on the jumper's hand help elevate the image to the top. The shadows hitting the beach also give the photo that extra quality.

The WPJA contest judges presented Sol Tamargo, a 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.
