2021 South Australian ABIA Awards Results
Yet another year has been and past, and what a year it has been for the wedding industry! This past week saw the announcement of the winners of the 2021 South Australian ABIA Awards and I can proudly say that SvenStudios has once again shown to be one of the top rated wedding suppliers in South Australia!
The ABIA awards (Australian Bridal Industry Academy) are awarded to wedding vendors in a wide variety of categories in each state, and also nationally each year. In previous years, SvenStudios has proudly been a finalist in a number of categories, including wedding photographer, photobooth supplier, and this year also being a fionalist int he wedding videography category. In the 2020 edition of the awards, SvenStudios was awarded the runner-up wedding photographer of the year and the runner-up best photobooth supplier of the year gongs in South Australia so we were quite optimistic about the results of the 2021 South Australian ABIA Awards!
Unfortunately we diddn’t quite take out the golden star as the best wedding photographer, nor the best wedding videographer in the state, although we are very proud to have been selected as a finalist in both these categories!
In order to be a finalist in a category an aggregate rating drawn from reviews direct from previous couples are collated and run through an algorithm to find the best rated supplier in each category. A finalist is a supplier who achieved a rating of 95% or above. SvenStudios recieved an aggregate rating of 97.94% for wedding photography, and 96.18% as a wedding videographer!
The ABIA Awards are a unique way of running awards with the winners soley selected by the reviews given by previous couples the supplier has served at their actual wedding in the previous year. In this way future engaged couples are better informed by how well a certain supplier has bee recieved in the past by other couples, without having to rely on ‘industry expert’ awards awarded by people not in any way involved with a supplier’s past work.
As a result SvenStudios are super happy and proud to have recieved such glowing reviews over the past year by our newly wedded couples and super pleased to be a finalist wedding photographer and videographer in the 2021 South Australian ABIA Awards! Thanks so much for those who took the time to write out a lovely review, and hopefully next year we can take out the golden star!
