10th place in Details (Found)
The WPJA contest judges presented Rick Collins, a British Columbia, Canada 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.
- This picture is more of an unusual look at a scene than it is a detail, but it works. Great to take risks.
Wedding photographer Rick Collins, was awarded 10th place for photo 1116321 in the Details (Found) category for the WPJA's 2012 Q4 Contest.
