WPPI Awards Competitions

WPPI’s The Annual: 16×20 Print, Album and Filmmaking competition is the most prestigious wedding, portrait and print competition in the world, and the capstone event of the WPPI Conference + Show, with an awards ceremony honoring the most illustrious photographers of the year, many of whom spend their entire year preparing for this competition.

Images are judged live at WPPI in Las Vegas by our world-renowned judges. The live judging is an invaluable education experience for the entrants and show attendees. As entrants advance through the competitions, they achieve points towards their Honors of Excellence (Honors) designation which help entrants progress on their journey of growth and prestige among their community.

The competition culminates with live judging at WPPI’s yearly conference and a gallery exhibition at the show taking place in Las Vegas. Prizes include the Grand Awards and crystal trophies.

The program’s main goal is to encourage, educate and motivate photographers to be constantly committed to their craft. By entering the competition, every entrant receives priceless feedback and the opportunity to be recognized by their peers for their achievements.
