Looking through our monthly Photobug Community Facebook challenges and Top Pics of every month, you’ll notice that we love engagement photos as much as we love wedding day coverage. We can’t help it! There’s something absolutely magical about capturing the love between a couple during their wedding planning process and wedding day. We want to celebrate all of the hard work that goes into engagement photography sessions by bringing back our beloved engagement photography contest.
Here’s the rundown on what you need to know before submitting your images—you can find the legalese version on our faq page and official rules page.
Engagement Contest Details
Submissions for the Best of the Best Engagement Photography Contest open on March 22, 2022 and will close to the public on April 13, 2022 at 11:59 pm CST.
The contest closes on April 14, 2022 at 11:59 pm CST for Junebug members only!
So, What Should You Submit?
Real couples from real pre-wedding engagement sessions. We won’t be accepting models and styled shoots for this contest—unless it’s the models’ real engagement shoot. All images should be pre-wedding day coverage, too. We won’t be allowing any post-wedding day or wedding day images in this contest—meaning that anniversary shoots and elopements aren’t allowed.
This is an engagement photography contest after all.
Meet the Judges
We’re so excited to welcome Katch Silva, Bare Odds, and The Ferros as our guest judges. We’ll be interviewing them in the coming weeks to find out more about what they’re looking for in winning images.
The Judging Process
If you’ve never participated in our Best of the Best contests before, you’re in luck. We’re transparent about the judging process. We’re also open about why we think participating in photography contests is worth it.
In the meantime, start looking through images from your favorite engagement sessions that took place between January 1, 2021 and April 14, 2022. We can’t wait to see your celebrations of engagements from all over the world in our 2022 Best of the Best Engagement Photography Contest!
