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.
- A moment can't be trumped by any other element of an image. In fact everything in a photograph works to serve the purpose of communicating a moment. This image gains power through its servitude to the meaning and purpose of visual communication.
