- Hot and humid days are familiar to us all, those inimitable moments where you daydream of baths, showers, pools, bags of ice or a cool breeze. This man moves an office chair to sit in front of a fan in hopes if drying his sweat spots and finding respite from the oppressive nature of heat. In the meantime, the man at left looks on with a knowing smile.
The WPJA contest judges presented Luigi Rota, a Lecco, Italy 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.
