Condivido con gioia un fantastico 4° posto nella categoria Emotion della associazione internazionale AGWPJA. L’associazione AGWPJA è una associazione internazionale con sede negli USA e raccoglie al suo interno fotografi da tutto il mondo.
Questo il commento dei giudici:
A very strong narrative and a powerful image. This is a perfect example of a single picture telling a greater story than a thousand words.
Riporto dal loro sito:
The origins of the Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association date back to the very first photo contest of the WPJA in the Winter of 2002. It was in that contest that a Wedding Photojournalism Digital Manipulation category was first introduced to the wedding photography industry.
The AG|WPJA has become a refuge and a platform for dedicated wedding photojournalists who also happen to be masters in digital photo enhancement. It’s also a showcase for the finest artistically enhanced wedding photography in the world, not to mention a great Web destination for the bride and groom seeking something special.
Unlike the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA), which has strict guidelines limiting photo manipulation, the AG|WPJA encourages and fosters creative image enhancement in post-production, giving members an opportunity to “stretch out” and achieve their full creative vision as artists. At the same time, the founders of the WPJA and AG|WPJA wanted to separate the two distinct schools of thought so members could continue to enjoy each platform of photography and reach their clientele of choice.
