2016 Q2 Photography Contest Judges


  • Ahhh such grand formality reigns at far left as a bride and groom take their roles with aplomb but, “meanwhile back at the ranch,” code for “behind the scenes” in the parlance of 1950’s western films - a grand informality exists. It just another wedding for this gents who use the time for matters, surely, of equal import.

The WPJA contest judges presented Leandro Donato, a São Paulo, Brazil 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.
