Wedding photographer Marino Prieto, was awarded 19th place for photo 1594941 in the Wildcard Portrait category for the WPJA's 2015 Q1 Photography Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Marino Prieto, a Brazil 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.
