The WPJA contest judges presented James Nix, a North Carolina, United States 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.
- The framing of the boy between the dark suits and the nice moment of the boy touching his tie all come together to give a sense of how this wedding day is bigger than the people participating. The sunglasses and the boys raised head looks like he is trying to be one of the adults around him.
