The FdB AWARDS contest in recent years has grown across borders at an international level. And for six years it has been holding this contest that consists of four rounds a year. In each round, three great photographers from different countries participate as judges, those in charge of selecting the winning photographs.
Last year we launched a new category: "Wedding Story"
In this challenge, the photographer must demonstrate not only his technical ability, but also his capacity for synthesis and narrative with only 20 photographs, which he believes are the best and representative of the same wedding.
The winner of the Wedding Story category in the year 2020 is José Ignacio Ruiz (Photoinstants) renowned wedding photographer who lives and works in Madrid. Nobody like him knows how to tell us stories through his sensitive gaze.
