The Queensland Wedding Industry night of nights came round again on Tuesday 19th May with the annual Australian Bridal Industry Academy (ABIA) Awards held at the Royal on the Park in Brisbane. Whilst it isn't quite the Oscar's, it is a great opportunity to get out and meet other people in the industry and enjoy a fabulous evening of wining and dining. Masterpieces was nominated as a Top Contender in two categories, Photography and Video and it was quite tense waiting to find out exactly where we had placed. With all the nominations and judging being decided by Brides and Grooms, it really is a great way to find out your standing in the wedding industry and how you are really seen by the most important judges of all - your clients!! In the end, we ended up with 8th overall for photography (out of 233 nominees!!) and 7th for video (out of 65 nominees!!) so it was a pretty good result for both sides of the business. However, we are perfectionists and won't be entirely happy until it is our name on the winner's trophy!! We would like to say a massive thanks to all those couples who did vote for us this year - we know how highly you must have rated us for us to get that high in the results and we are humbled by that. For those couples who didn't get round to voting, don't worry, you can still get your entries in for next year!!
