Wedding photographer Wasan Chirdchom, was awarded 2nd place for photo 1197996 in the Animals category for the WPJA's 2013 Q2 Contest.

The WPJA contest judges presented Wasan Chirdchom, a Thailand 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.


  • Maybe you guys are tired of all the elephant photos, but Iā€™m not. The lifting of the hat was the moment that made this right, not just that there was an elephant roaming around.
  • A classically composed photograph of a funny elephant moment.
