2014 Q1 Photography Contest Judges


  • Great vision on the part of the photographer to leave the faces out of the image and let the poignant gesture carry the frame.

The WPJA contest judges presented Amelia Phillips Hale, a South 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.
