4th place in Getting Ready
The WPJA contest judges presented Bestian Tan, a Malaysia 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.
- Strong expression, good composition.
- A nice, tight, clean photo that captures the ritual of preparing the bride for her wedding. Simple and effective.
Wedding photographer Bestian Tan, was awarded 4th place for photo 872356 in the Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2012 Q1 Contest.
