NEW YORK (PRWEB) April 21, 2022
Love Stories TV, a global media brand providing entertainment and wedding inspiration through emotional, high-quality video content, just announced the winners of its 6th Annual Wedding Film Awards. This year’s awards were Love Stories TV’s biggest-to-date with 5,000+ films submitted by 800+ filmmakers worldwide.
This year’s winners include an elopement on a glacier in Iceland, a Madonna-inspired surprise flash mob that became a viral sensation, a bride whose mother passed away just 15 days before the wedding, another bride battling cancer, a couple separated in different countries during the pandemic, an epic multi-day celebration in Southern California and many more emotional, heartwarming and inspiring stories.
Love Stories TV will award over $10,000 in cash prizes to the winning creators. As the only global awards program focused exclusively on the art of wedding filmmaking, the Love Stories TV Wedding Film Awards (WFAs) celebrate some of the most innovative and highly respected wedding videographers in the world.
Rachel Jo Silver, Founder and CEO of Love Stories TV, commented, “As we enter the 2022 Wedding Boom, the biggest wedding season in 40+ years, we are honored to recognize the exemplary work of filmmakers across the world and celebrate the return to in-person celebrations. At a moment where the need for wedding inspiration is at an all-time high, we’re proud to give these incredible creators a platform to share their art and build their brands.”
In nine of the twelve categories, the winners were selected by a panel of judges, made up of elite wedding filmmakers like Matt Johnson, Yossuana Aguilar and Henry Saint-Jean, as well as wedding industry VIPs like Madeline Gardner of Morilee, Jennette Kruszka of Kleinfeld and Jove Meyer of Jove Meyer Events.
This year’s prestigious Filmmaker of the Year and Film of the Year were chosen by popular vote among the Love Stories TV filmmaker community, while the People’s Choice award was chosen by Love Stories TV’s broader audience of soonlyweds and wedding professionals. Thousands of votes were cast—the highest participation to date.
