- Even the blind would be able to see the beauty of this image as fire licks the ceiling from the pyre of a wedding feast. The chef, in control of this massive blaze, goes about his work undaunted by the drama that envelopes the scene. The warm glow of a thousand candles is a lantern of purposeful flame, lighting the way to a grand wedding.
The WPJA contest judges presented Aleks Kus, a Slovenia 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.
