16th place in Kids (Being Kids)
The WPJA contest judges presented Dean Dampney, a New South Wales, Australia 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.
Wedding photographer Dean Dampney, was awarded 16th place for photo 1881596 in the Kids (Being Kids) category for the WPJA's 2016 Q2 Photography Contest .
