Wedding photographer Pedro Cabrera, was awarded 6th place for photo 1634816 in the Cake Cutting category for the WPJA's 2015 Q2 Photography Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Pedro Cabrera, a Madrid, Spain 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.
- What a delightful and intriguing scene. It seems a selfie stick has one-upped the traditional cake cutting in both laughter and fun. This is a wonderful example of an image that most likely could have never been imagined until the scene presented itself to a photographer skilled enough to recognize the better frame. Juxtapositions are at their best when their desire for attention cannot be ignored.
