Wedding photographer Cristiano Ostinelli, was awarded 3rd place for photo 1163836 in the Send Off/Departure category for the WPJA's 2013 Q2 Contest.
- Graphic, arty composition that takes you right to the couple. Nice use of ambience.
- Perfect use of environment.
- What great composition. It reminds me of Cartier-Bresson, or Mario Giacometti.
The WPJA contest judges presented Cristiano Ostinelli, a Italy 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.
