The results are now out for the Wedding Photojournalist Associations annual contest, the fourth quarter of this competition is always the most difficult to get any image placed due to the large number of photographers from across the World entering. The 2010 Q4 Contest showcases the wedding photojournalism of WPJA members throughout the 2010 year in 18 categories. From 24,112 entries only 360 finalists were selected. I am very pleased to find out that one of my images placed first in the musicians and DJs category. The image was shot at the wedding of Rachel and Billy back in December, their wedding took place at the fantastic Thornton Manor, one of my favourite locations. The image can been seen below.

I also placed an image in the Weather category, this image from Becky and Gary’s wedding was shot again back in December at their winter wedding at Peckforton Castle. This award winning image can be seen below.
