The Olympics of Photography: Call for Entries

Wpc Logo

All Canadian professional photographers are invited to submit images for consideration as part of Team Canada’s entry.

The World Photographic Cup (WPC) is a global photography competition, launched as a vehicle to universally share photographic style, encourage image excellence and create friendships across all diverse cultural environments. The WPC is a not-for-profit organization. Its singular goal is to unite photographers in a spirit of friendship and cooperation.

National photographic teams from America and Europe and from Asia to Australia participate. The Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC) is the submitting association and all Canadian professional photographers are invited to submit images to create the best possible team entry for Canada. 

It’s the only international photographic competition where a professional photographer can represent his or her country. This alone should make anyone proud of participating. There are many important international competitions like World Press, Sony Awards, National Geographic etc, but in these competitions, you enter for yourself, for the recognition, the prizes, the fame and the glory. But WPC you do it for your country.

Each country (28) entering the WPC strives to put together the best of the best team entry. This is why Canada needs your talent, your creativity to succeed. Help us make Canadian photography talent known on the world scene. Submit your 3 images today. The top ten images in each of the six categories will be showcased globally in various media forms.

There are two components to the World Photographic Cup. In the first component, all Canadian Images will be curated by our panel of Canadian Judges. Our panel will anonymously score each image entered into the competition. Each image will be assigned a score that is the average of each of the three judges for that particular category. The top three highest scoring images will comprise Team Canada’s entry into the World Photographic Cup. Those top three images will be awarded a certificate stating that they placed in the top three of all entries in Canada. Additional “Honorable Mention” certificates will be awarded to a maximum of a “Top Ten” in each category. The awarding of “Honorable Mention” or “Top Ten” certificates will be at the discretion of the judges and WPC committee.
