Two Excellence Awards
1st Half 2015 Photography Competition
Asia Wedding Photographers Association
This was my first time entered Asia Wedding Photographers Association (AsiaWPA)'s wedding photography competition and this is my first time receiving awards beyond New Zealand. The competition is held bi-annually by AsiaWPA which is a professional photography association for Asian photographers in Asia countries such as China, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, and non Asia countries such as United States, Canada and Italy.
Being an Asian living in New Zealand, I have developed myself a FUSION styles, which is not quite Asian but not quite western style. I entered this competition was purely with the "give it a try and see how it goes" attitude, knowing my photography styles may not fit well in Asian run competitions, and I was sure I was unable to compare with Asian big names like Keda.Z and Johnson Wee, so I did not have high hope at all.
I have submitted three images that I used for NZIPP Iris Awards Awards 2014 for the competition. According to AsiaWPA's information, there were over 1500 entries in this competition, and I feel extremely lucky that I have received two awards from it.
Will I enter this competition again? Probably yes, since this gives me positive exposure in Asia countries and internationally, especially in Hong Kong and China where I have agents working together with me bringing clients to our beautiful country New Zealand for their wedding or pre wedding photography.
