The international jury, which consisted of 20 international judges and chairman of Johan Brouwers, worked hard last month and now the results were shown in Innsbruck, Austria. The judges evaluated over 2400 photographs in total, and used the three highest scores to rank the photographers in each category. John’s best wedding photograph was the only one judged as “Excellent” (=Gold) in the wedding category. He also had two photographs with the award “Merit” (=Bronze). The total score of these three photographs resulted in a total 4th placement in the wedding category.
