Print Awards

International Photography Competitions


The WPPI annual 16x20 Awards of Excellence print competition provide photographers from around the world with the opportunity to showcase their work and compete with the very best wedding and portrait photographers in the world. It rewards excellence in the craft, and it recognizes the highest level of work being created among several different categories. Literally thousands of entrees from dozens of countries converge in Las Vegas NV, and this print competition kicks off the annual Wedding and Portrait Photographer's International convention.

While winning awards are great, it's the educational value of the print competition that makes it such an integral part of a photographer's evolution. When I began my involvement with WPPI back in 2005, I wasn't truly aware of the level of work being produced from other parts of the world. It was eye opening, to say the least. By simply viewing imagery from around the world, and then watching the judges give their honest, constructive feedback and scores, I was motivated to look beyond the status quo with my work. I've been fortunate enough to have been named a WPPI Master, and I've earned the highest award, The Grand award for the Photojournalism Category. For the past several years, I've been heavily involved in the competition's print judging, which is an honor in itself. It's a fantastic gathering of the most accomplished and creative wedding and portrait photographers from around the globe, and it's an excellent barometer for comparing ourselves to the very best. Below, you can view many of my award winning entries, and some of the accolades I've achieved along the way. I'm incredibly proud to mention that in 2015, I became a 2 time Grand Award winner for Photojournalism at the WPPI international convention in Las Vegas.
