Canon BP WPOY 2017-18: Video Category Nominees


We reveal the top six nominees of the two brand new video categories of the Canon Better Photography Wedding Photographer of the Year 2017-18 Awards.

For the first time in the history of the Wedding Photographer of the Year awards, we added two new categories—The Best Short Wedding Video and The Adobe Premier Pro Award for Best Video Editing. In the last few years, video documentation has become as important as the photographs itself. These videos become ‘living’ snippets that the couples can watch and relive, through the years. This is where The Best Short Wedding Video category came in. We asked participants to submit videos that represented an interesting narrative of a wedding that they shot. On the other hand, editing is probably one of the most difficult aspects of filmmaking, and very often, the editors go unrecognised. With The Adobe Premier Pro Award for Best Video Editing, we wanted to recognise the video editors, without whom, the wedding video would not have been possible.
Here’s a look at the top six nominees in each of the categories.
