6th place in Transportation
The WPJA contest judges presented Daniel Monteiro, a Portugal 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.
- This is a riskier image that I wasn’t sure about at first, but it’s grown on me. The color palette is intriguing, and the glimpses of people add a mystery that I like. Nice to see the photographer embrace something different.
Wedding photographer Daniel Monteiro, was awarded 6th place for photo 1993536 in the Transportation category for the WPJA's 2017 Tri1 Photography Competition.
