WPPI Accolades of Excellence Photographers join competition for a variety of reasons. They do it to push themselves to do better, they are looking for industry peers to give them honest reviews and they look to test themselves among the best in the industry. I’ve had my fair share of submissions and I don’t win a lot of them but I had a few moments. (more…)

Automatically, being a photographer, when I first read those articles, I agreed with their point of view. The decorations will be gone in a day, the food eaten within hours, the dress worn once (maybe twice), but the photos and videos will last a lifetime. That certainly should propel it to the top spot right? (more…)
