8th place in Reception
The WPJA contest judges presented Damiano Salvadori, a Firenze, 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.
- What I love here is how the tilted angle and ghosting effect have a dizzying effect of placing you in the moment. This image is an interpretation of the mood and feel of a pretty fun party. The photographer used a creative license to interpret - rather than just record - a scene.
Wedding photographer Damiano Salvadori, was awarded 8th place for photo 1598106 in the Reception category for the WPJA's 2015 Q1 Photography Contest.
