WPPI 2015, the largest organization in the world just recently held the annual convention and competition Feb 26- March 4, 2015 in Las Vegas Nevada. If you guys are not really familiar what it is, here is an excerpt from their website:
Each year, nearly 13,000 professional and aspiring photographers and filmmakers attend WPPI to learn new techniques from industry leaders, build new relationships to grow their business, experience new products and solutions from major manufacturers to improve their productivity, and enjoy the many attractions in Las Vegas. WPPI is a week-long event combining educational seminars with a major industry trade show and networking events, all designed around learning the latest techniques, building new relationships and growing a business in a friendly, fun environment – all at one time, in one place.

FILM MAKING COMPETITION
We only had two entries, and two of our entries made it to the top ten of judging and one made it to the final five. After judging, we left with the third highest score. We are proud to announce that REB6STUDIOS took home the 2015 Silver Award Honors of Excellence!
There were lots of negatives and complaints people can think about as to why we didn’t take home the grand prize, but we don’t feed off of the negative vibe. We take it as a challenge to come back next year and aim for the gold. After all, with so many entries from the best of the best wedding videographes in the world, our only 2 entries making it to the top ten, says a lot already. That to me, is already a win no matter what!
Also we were the only Bay Area Wedding Videographer who got to the top five, so I think we represented the Bay pretty well!!!
Win or lose, entering competitions keeps me and my team highly motivated to push our creative boundaries each and every single time we go on an shoot.
Ofcourse, we weren’t just there to compete. We also had the chance to meet with some like minded individuals, attended business and creative classes, and party!!!
We would like to thank our clients who entrusted us to film their big day. To our family and friends who are always there to support and believe in us, we thank you! We will be back next year!!!
