WHAT ARE THE CONTEST CATEGORIES?

Getting Ready
Entries which spontaneously capture the prepping, grooming, arranging, outfitting, and anticipation before the ceremony.

Ceremony
Images that capture guests and participants throughout pre-ceremony, vow-exchange, and receiving line activity.

Reception
Photographs that document festivities from the cocktail hour through the last dance and departure.

Details
Entries that encompass tighter shots of the day's small slices AS THEY WERE FOUND.
NOTE: This category is NOT for set-up detail shots. It's important that images submitted in this category don't contain content controlled by the photographer.

Off-Camera Lighting
Images that exemplify the use of artificial light, electronic flash or video lights. Images must showcase a moment and nothing else (no portraits, details, etc.).

Creative Portrait (This is the only category for this contest where portraits are accepted.)
Portraits that employ a fresh and artistic approach to portraiture in capturing the bride, groom, bridal party, family, friends, children and/or any other posed wedding party member. Candid moments are not eligible for this category.
NOTE: Though this category may resemble traditional portraiture for some, the key here is to be creative with your subjects.
