I’ve never been a huge fan of photography competitions. firstly one has to become a member of some sort of phoney photography society – seems silly to me that members only can enter. Then, once you paid a ridiculously high membership fee in order to participate you have to categorise each image. Is it happy? Sad? Emotional? Great light? What if it doesn’t fall into any of the above category? Is it game over then?
Junebug Weddings “best of the best” list is the not one of those lists. Anyone can participate so it seems fairer. There aren’t any categories either. A great image is a great image. End of. I respect that. That’s why I was one of over 8000 photographers world wide who sent an image in for judging. I got myself an honourable mention. That is humbling. And incredibly encouraging. Thank you Junebug.
