2017 Tri1 Photography Competition Judges

Judges

  • Simply beautiful. The angle is perfect with the military men lined up, and I get a peek of the man’s face telling the girl to be quiet. The light falling on the little girl is perfect and highlights her, yet upon further glance you seem the light on the scolding fingers also has a touch of light. Beautiful.
  • The symmetrical, formal lineup of the men in uniform is broken by the fluffy white dress, and the lone dad in the middle, with a pointed finger, telling his little girl to settle down. It's a wonderful captured moment of the kind of things you see at weddings and pretty much anywhere else where decorum is demanded.

The WPJA contest judges presented Janine Collette, a New Jersey, United States 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.
