QHotels has launched its annual search for the UK’s best wedding photos, as the second Wedding Photo Awards opens for entries on Facebook and Instagram.
After receiving over 2,500 entries and votes in the first Wedding Photo Awards last year, QHotels is now calling for entries to the 2017 competition, which will celebrate the memorable moments captured at weddings, from the funny to the romantic.
Anyone in the UK can submit a photo – whether an experienced photographer or a guest at a wedding – by posting it on QHotels’ Facebook or Instagram page using the hashtag #WeddingPhotoAwards, along with the name of the category they wish to enter.
The winner of each category will receive a one-night break for two with dinner at one of QHotels’ 26 four-star hotels.
The 2017 Wedding Photo Award categories are:
· Best ‘first look’ photo
· Funniest wedding photo
· Best ‘perfect kiss’ photo
· Best ‘first dance’ photo
· Best ‘themed wedding’ photo
Entries will close on 3rd July when QHotels’ expert wedding panel will announce the shortlist for each category, before going to a public vote on social media to decide the winner.
QHotels’ Director of Marketing, Claire Rowland, launched the awards, saying: “We were overwhelmed by the response to the Wedding Photo Awards last year, with a fantastic range of entries, from photo-bombed selfies to comically-staged group shots and black and white imagery.
“This year we’re expecting to see brides and grooms-to-be get even more creative due to the influence of social media channels such as Instagram and Pinterest, which they turn to for wedding photography inspiration. We hope to see more wonderful and unique photography choices in the 2017 awards.”
