Always honored to receive a WPJA award. There are only two wedding photographer contests I still submit to, @weddingphotojournalists being one of them. The folks who judge these contests are all photojournalists outside of the wedding industries. Therefore, the results aren't affected by whatever ridiculous wedding trend is currently hot. It is also an even playing field for everyone so there is no pay more to get an advantage. And the best part, only photos where the photographer had 100% nothing at all to do with the creation of the photo, besides clicking the shutter button, are eligible, true #photojournalism.
