No. You cannot submit your own wedding.
Can I submit weddings that I already submitted on previous editions?

I am participating on the Belief Wedding Book. Can I submit the same wedding?

I don’t have the permission to use the pictures, can I submit anyway?
No. You need to have their consent to participate.
I have a beautiful wedding but the photographer gave exclusivity for a blog or magazine. Can I submit anyway?
Let's say that I’m one of the winners. What happens next?
You will receive an email from Giovana Duailibe sharing with you the news and all the information needed.
Agreement Terms should be signed. By you, the photographer, and the couple (both of them).
You will have approximately 48 hours for this stage. Make sure to let your couple and photographer in stand by for this.
After the announcement (January 21st), we will start to promote the Awards 12th edition on our social media channels and website.
I want to be featured worldwide to promote my work, how does it work?
The Press Service to promote you worldwide as one of the winners is not included. In case you are among the winners, we highly recommend you to participate. Our goal is to get you featured in at least one country that is not yours. International press services are super expensive, and because of our relationship with the press, we can offer you for a symbolic fee.
The Press Strategy investment is $125 and you have up to 48 hours after we notify you of the result, to let us know if you will participate. You cannot be added after we start the press service.
You will need to fill out a form with more information and extra pictures. We will make sure to submit your wedding as a real wedding, and also as part of the Awards’ result.
This is not an individual work. You will be featured among other winners, and in case the media outlet like your photos, they will feature you as a real wedding. This is not guaranteed. Our commitment is to promote you in at least one outlet out of your own country. We don’t promise any result, even if we know by experience that winners are featured more than once internationally.
This is the 12th edition, we have had incredible results in the past and we are confident that this edition will be even better.
