AGWPJA Q1 2009 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.

WEDDING DAY OR ENGAGEMENT PORTRAIT *
Photographs that demonstrate the photographer's ability to create an interesting and artistic environmental portrait of the bride and groom taken either on the wedding day itself or from an engagement portrait session that took place prior to the wedding day. Candid moments are not eligible for this category. NOTE: This is the only category where non-wedding day images are allowed. Though this category may resemble traditional portraiture for some, the key here is to be creative with your subjects.
