The Jury panel for this contest is comprised of three international wedding photographers outside of North America (Canada, USA & Mexico).  Each juror has consistently received accolades for their craft from the international wedding community.  Their experience, dedication to the wedding community and urge to continuously raise the bar across the industry qualifies them to evaluate submissions reliably and without bias. Masters Awards will be awarded to photos that our judges find exceptional. The elements used to assess each submission will include but not be limited to: impact, emotion, atmosphere, creativity, use of light, composition and post-processing techniques. This contest aims to represent all styles of wedding photography.Therefore the jury will change after every round of awards.

 

HOW ARE THE PHOTOS JUDGED?

All entries are assessed anonymously, which means that the photographer’s name is not visible, and the jurors are not together to discuss photos.
When 2 or 3 jurors vote for a particular photo, this photo is presented with an award.
A juror cannot see which photo has received a vote from another juror.
A juror can vote for up to 15% of the entries.
There is no minimum with respect to the number of votes per juror so only the best images will be awarded. 

 

 




Steven – a 22-year-old boy on his pursuit of happiness and trying to be the best version of himself. Every. Fucking. Day.
Call him foolish or crazy but Steven doesn’t believe in talent. This is why he is working so hard on his career and passion in photography.
His style in wedding photography is an extension of his own mind. Being shy and introvert in his personal life, Steven’s photography strongly contrasts his personality.
The result of his photojournalistic work are unique and outstanding images displaying the pureness of joy, excessive craziness and warm-hearting humor.

Having shot portrait, travel and nature photography in the past, Martijn Roos brings elements from all three into his weddings. He has developed a darker style that harbours a sense of peace and warmth. As a destination wedding photographer he combines his love for traveling with his passion to create meaningful and valuable images for his clients. Throughout the years he has learned to enjoy teaching others about photography more and more, and therefore also focuses on mentoring and teaching besides shooting weddings. Besides capturing wedding days he shoots a lot of portrait and travel work, to keep experimenting and practicing, but also to be less documentary and to be more in control of light and timing.
