MPA announces wedding photography winners

The Master Photographers Association (MPA) has announced the winners in its 2011 Master Photography Awards with wedding photography featuring highly.

The following photographers won top prize in their chosen category:

Jose Luis Guardia Vazquez - Contemporary Wedding
Steve Tan - Classical Wedding
Louis Loo - Wedding Party
Andrea Barrett - Wedding Album
Joseph Goh Meng Huat - Yervant Bridal Awards

In addition to his Contemporary Wedding success, Jose Luis Guardia Vazquez was named International Photographer of Year and his work also won Best Overseas Image and Best EU Portfolio.

The announcement was made at the recent Master Photography Awards Dinner in Newcastle. The event attracted the cream of the world's photographers who, together with many major trade representatives, packed into the Gateshead Hilton for a glittering night's celebration of photography.

The judging panel was again headed by Henk van Kooten FMPA, and the judges evaluated each entry and awarded points based on impact, composition, colour management and workmanship.

Colin Buck, MPA chief executive, paid tribute to the winners: "Huge congratulations go to all our winners. The competition was especially fierce this year and it seems that, once again, the bar has been raised in terms of imagination and technical expertise. The creativity displayed by the top level of wedding photographers is truly amazing and I'm sure it must act as a huge inspiration for the rest of the industry."
