WPJA and MYWED Award winning images

It is a rare Autumn day that I can take time off to reflect upon my personal progress as a wedding & portrait photographer based in Prague.

Though I used to relish the idea of entering wedding photography contests - in late summer of 2018 after much prodding from my own staff - I finally relented. Though I stopped entering a year later due to the Covid situation...

The Wedding Photojournalist Association or the WPJA was an obvious choice as they set the bar very high for both accepting members as well as recognizing excellence amongst its rank. I did smile a bit as I recognized many members - who like myself left photojournalism for the wonderful story telling ability that is present in modern & contemporary wedding photography. So many of the giants of todays wedding photography were formerly successful photojournalists.

Though I have only just started to submit images I am pretty pleased with the recognition received so far. I do hope to add many more such wonderful moments captured on the behalf of couples who entrust in me to tell their stories.

International photojournalism awards:

The Best of Photojournalism 2 - 1st places in Magazine and Reportage

Czech Press Photo - numerous awards in various categories

Hearst Journalism Award

KNPA Sports Photographer of the Year

and various others

The BEST AWARD: being told that children were being adopted from an orphanage in the Ukraine by American couples who had seen

my reportage on their plight. The truth is: there are no awards that can ever top that!

Kurt's photography has been exhibited internationally in: New York City, London, Prague and Louisville
