Awards

Recognition and Rewards for the Most Excellent Wedding Photographers

Our intent is to raise the profile of WPD Professional Wedding Photographers and build the community and our commitment to the profession of wedding photography.

The Wedding Photographer Awards Program is a dynamic project that currently is in development. As of May 2017 we are still accepting suggestions through the mail form below if you have an idea that you’d like to submit for consideration.

Genesis of ideas so far include:

  • A monthly gallery of select images from new Members where each gallery image links to an Awards Page displaying a larger version of the image, details from the photographer’s profile, and a link to the photographer’s website.
  • A unique and coveted Award Badge which can be added to the photographer’s website to link to their Awards Page on WeddingPhotographerDirectory.com
  • An Awards Collection page item which links to previous month’s Wedding Photographer Awards.
  • A Wedding Photo Contest with Submission Deadline and review of submissions by non-partisan, seasoned curators.
  • Award of Credits in lieu of cash which can be applied to Membership feature upgrades on WeddingPhotographerDirectory.com
  • An Annual Contest for Best Wedding Photo of the Year selected from the 12 Best Wedding Photo of the Month Awards, open only to active WPD members.
  • Regional Awards
  • Best in the State Awards
  • Award Winners Announcement published through Social Media channels including FaceBook, Twitter and Instagram.
  • Prizes?  Maybe… what were you thinking? All expenses paid trip to Tahiti? Other than recognition, how about a coffee mug, fridge magnet or mouse pad instead?

Comments or questions are welcome.
