Wedding photographer Masato Kubo, was awarded 1st place for photo 1184281 in the Food & Drinks category for the WPJA's 2013 Q2 Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Masato Kubo, a Tokyo, Japan 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.
- DIfferent. Simple. Interesting. Would have been even stronger cropped from the right, and if the photographer had been able to move slightly to the left to eliminate the touch of background clutter.
- Very clean and unexpected with a touch of humor.
