Photographers we need your talent. Team Canada is looking for images to submit to the World Photographic Cup. All Canadian photographers are welcome to enter…
Since its beginnings, photography as an art has brought people together.
So it is not surprising that there is a special bond between photographers – regardless of where they come from. Photography is a bond that transcends language, culture, and geography. That’s the foundation behind the World Photographic Cup, a one of a kind international team competition created in 2013, celebrating photography in a way never dreamed of before. Sure, there are lots of other competitions, but there is just one World Photographic Cup.
WPC Team Canada creates our country’s submission. The committee, consisting of volunteers from supporting photographic associations, are tasked with curating all images submitted by Canadian photographers to find the 24 exceptional images that will represent Canada in the World Photographic Cup competition.
We know that Canada has many of the best and most creative photographers in the world. Our goal is to get Canadian images showcased in this competition and go for gold. We want Canada to be on the podium!
All Canadian Photographers, professional and amateur, are invited to submit images to the World Photographic Cup -Team Canada for consideration.
Entries for 2023 will be accepted in July/August of 2022.

“I didn’t know what I was in for, when I entered. Suddenly, I found myself being mentored by experts in the field who inspired me to go that extra mile. If you want a chance to work with curators with a wealth of knowledge and experience, this is for you. Picture yourself, standing in solidarity with Team Canada, and with the world, as countries unite in an celebration of our passion for photography. That gold medal looks good on you!”
“I didn’t make the Canadian team, but still beneficial at the same time. I got a ton of marketing exposure just out of making it to the final round alone.
For example, getting my work into a fine art gallery (my first fine art gallery in 10+ years) and my image ‘Drop in Time’ was the curator’s favourite. Showing her the PPOC National Excellence award and telling her about the World Cup finals sure helped a lot.”
“This is by far the highlight of my photographic career. Representing my country – there is no bigger source of pride and gratitude than that. I am beyond honored and extremely humbled to have been chosen. Go Team Canada!!”
“It’s truly an honour to represent Canada in the creative realm, to be a member of a team that validates artists and promotes the talent within our country is truly a prize in itself.”
“Winning a Bronze Medal at the World Photographic Cup has embedded significant credibility and economic rewards to my photographic career”.
“Having the opportunity to represent Canada, and winning a bronze medal at the World Photographic Cup, was an amazing experience that I’ll never forget. Beyond that, the press and recognition I’ve received have boosted my business and reaffirmed for my clients that choosing to work with me is worth the investment. Entering WPC was one of the best decisions I’ve made”
