Amy’s 1st Place award from WPPI (mentioned here previously) has been confirmed and published in WPPI’s Newsletter. We’re still waiting for them to update the ‘previous’ winners page but since it has already been published in the Newsletter, we’re happy to show the image concerned. Here it is – from Matthew & Denise’s beautiful wedding in Rome. The print (which is what the judges see) has so much more detail than you could ever make out on here.
Twice a year, the most prestigious body in our industry – Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI), hold an 8″ x 10″ print competition. To be placed (1st, 2nd or 3rd) in any of the categories is a fabulous achievement considering the quality of the entrants – many of whom are amongst the world’s best. We received an email yesterday from WPPI with the results for Amy’s entries and of the 5 she entrusted with Poste Italiane to get to the USA (no mean feat!), she has achieved ‘Accolades of Excellence’ for 3 of them (i.e. they scored 80/100 or more) and an incredible 1st Place for the Wedding Photojournalism entry! Wow – nice one Amy :) We’ll see the winning entry in a future issue of Rangefinder magazine. We’ll also wait for the WPPI website to be updated before showing it here but a clue: it’s in one of our galleries – have a guess ;) – Andy
