2016 Q4 Photography Competition Judges

Judges

  • You can’t go wrong with an underwater bride, especially when it is combined with optimal lighting like this.

The WPJA contest judges presented Erik Shenko, a Costa Rica 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.
