Wedding photographer Beatrice Moricci, was awarded 1st place for photo 1939986 in the Humor category for the WPJA's 2016 Q4 Photography Competition.
The WPJA contest judges presented Beatrice Moricci, a Arezzo, 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.
- Often humor is the photographer capturing something that happens spontaneously, but this picture was the photographer seeing a great reflection. Well done.
- This clever illusion made me smile. I am not sure if the hand and brush adds valuable information, but it works either way.
- This could be my first known experience with a photo made by a photographer using a camera to draw a mustache on someone. She and the entire scene made for a great opportunity for the photographer. Kudos to the photographer for doing some highbrow strokes on the “down low.”
