The Artistic Wedding Photojournalism Contests are provided with the hope of establishing a bridge between the worlds of photo manipulation and wedding photojournalism. Details of the next photo contest run by the Artistic Guild of the WPJA are provided on this page.
The AG|WPJA proudly recognizes the Photographer of the Year (POY), that member holding the most contest points (except those awarded from categories designated for portraits and/or details) at the end of each year.
This is the AG|WPJA second quarterly contest for 2013.
Contest Opens: Wednesday, June 5th, 2013
Contest Deadline: Friday, August 2nd, 2013

Images that capture guests and participants throughout pre-ceremony, vow-exchange, and receiving line activity.
Photographs that document festivities from the cocktail hour through the last dance and departure.
Entries that depict shots of the cake. These can be either set-up and controlled by the photographer or as they were found.
Other Vendors submissions include images of musicians, DJs, bands, wedding planners, reception hall staff, florists, caterers, etc., performing their job to make the wedding day possible.
