All images, posed or candid, of a wedding or other social event are included in this category. Images must be created during the actual event.

Pennsylvania
Images in this category should be representative of the state of Pennsylvania. All images must be captured within the state of Pennsylvania. Illustrative portraits, commercial or artistic images are accepted.

Wedding Open

The purpose of this competition is to allow photographers to enter images created during the actual Wedding Event. For an image to be merit worthy in the wedding competition, additional evaluation may be considered for the entries that illustrate the personality of the subject or subjects and the story of the wedding as well as the artistic and technical skills of the image maker.

Judges will keep in mind that the maker may have limited control over many aspects of a wedding – subject matter, environment and time of day, etc. Ultimately, additional consideration may be given to the maker for technically and artistically executing at a merit level in spite of challenges involved at an actual wedding
