Europas största fototävling för porträtt och bröllopsfotografer

Societies of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) arrangerar Europas största “20×16 print competition” som är en tävling för yrkesfotografer med utskrivna (printade) fotografier. John Hellström vann tre utmärkelser (awards / merits) och tavlorna visades upp för över 10000 besökare i London. Se bilder från SWPP print competition här.


De tre klasserna som John fick pris i var:

  • Wedding Reportage
  • Wedding Avant Garde
  • Classical Wedding

(Se förklaringar på klasserna längre ner)


SWPP säger:

Enter the 20×16″ Competition – merited images will be displayed for 15,000 visitors to view in the Convention Tradeshow Area. The judging process is held in public so photographers can watch the assessments take place; this in itself is an invaluable learning process. The winner will be announced at our prestigious Awards Night at the 2017 Convention in London.
