Wedding photographer Luca Panvini, was awarded 6th place for photo 1966396 in the Symmetry category for the WPJA's 2016 Q4 Photography Competition.
The WPJA contest judges presented Luca Panvini, a Roma, 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.
- I really like this tastefully elegant use of graphic shapes in a store display and how the bride is holding a pair of shoes, and her bouquet, in one hand while reaching for another pair. Actually I like the way the entire scene comes together in symmetrically, colorful visual prose. The bride splits the frame in the middle, accentuating the repeating shapes.
