Started in 1978, Wedding & Portrait Photographer International, WPPI, is another trade association for wedding and portrait photographers, and also filmakers. Many of our DPPA members carry dual citizenship in PPA and WPPI. WPPI also has several print competitions throughout the year, with the big awards handed out during their week-long conference and trade show held in Las Vegas in the early part of each year.

As a local guild our family fares better than just about any other group at WPPI, both here at home in the US and internationally. Not only do we win consistently, but also, we win 1st place in many of the categories. Here is a list of this year’s awards that were handed out on March 4.
