Wedding photographer Artur Gawlikowski, was awarded 5th place for photo 993891 in the Scene Setters category for the WPJA's 2012 Q3 Contest.
- This was a thoughtful image and sometimes these get overlooked, I was glad the photographer took the time to see this image and take it. There is a real nice feel from the guy in the corner, just a quiet, well-done “getting ready” moment.
The WPJA contest judges presented Artur Gawlikowski, a Pomorskie, 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.
