Wedding photographer David Page, was awarded 2nd place for photo 1940651 in the Humor category for the WPJA's 2016 Q4 Photography Competition.
The WPJA contest judges presented David Page, a France 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.
- This image was great storytelling. In one photo we see the true message. The juxtaposition of the boy and the roasting pig is great. It is only more powerful because he is alone. I like the angle of the image as well.
