Last week, the WPJA announced their list of the Top 100 wedding PJs in the world for 2007...and to my great surprise and elation I found out I am on it! :)
The list is based on each photographer's winning images from the previous year; you can read more about the WPJA's conditions for membership and their challenging contest requirements in my post about my latest win from a few months ago. Given that their membership extends well into the thousands, I probably don't need to say what an accomplishment and an honor this is... And it becomes even more so when you factor in rankings by state or city.
For example, the 93rd-ranked WPJA member is actually #1 in Florida. The 96th-ranked is #1 in Singapore. And so on. And even the lowest ranked photographer for any given state or city is still well above the hundreds or thousands of other photographers in that area who didn't make the list in the first place.
As for California, I happen to be in the top ten. :)
Here's the list
