Wedding photographer Damon Pijlman, was awarded 7th place for photo 1453006 in the Kids (Being Kids) category for the WPJA's 2014 Q2 Photography Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Damon Pijlman, a Zuid Holland, Netherlands 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.
- Brilliantly captured. The dirt on the feet really encompasses childhood.
- I love those dirty feet framed with that lacy fringe so common to all things wedding-like as she momentarily ignores the fuss and formality of tradition and vows to swing across the image like a visual giggle with a gleeful smile.
