The World Photographic Cup is a competition in which a team of photographers represent their home country. This one of a kind international team competition features the best photographic art from around the world.
Nations across the globe, including Canada, meticulously curate their countries images to create a collection of 18 amazing images to enter in the World Photographic Cup. For Team Canada, the gruelling process began last summer, when submissions came in from coast to coast, vying for only 3 precious spots in each of the six categories.
The final 18 images went on to represent Canada at the World Photographic Cup. Of those a select few may make it to Top 10 in the World and have an opportunity to reach the WPC podium with individual Gold, Silver, or Bronze medals. Then depending on their final ranking, these images have a chance to help Team Canada win the World Photographic Cup!
Every photographer on Team Canada is excited to celebrate our Canadian medallists, and we thank them for propelling Canada on to the world photographic stage.
“I am in awe. There is an abundance of amazing talent that surrounds us and to be included is more than I ever imagined possible. I am grateful for all the love and support from family and my colleagues.”
A strong performance by Canada at the World Photographic Cup award ceremony in Phoenix, Arizona had two photographers reach the podium.
Susie Crichton won a bronze medal in the landscape category for her image ‘The Gathering’. Crichton captured the tree at the heart of the image one morning in Africa before adding the eerie feeling of the birds, faces and texture to create the vision she had in mind.
The inaugural photographic competition attracted entries from 22 countries and judging began in November. Canada can now boast it has some of the top photographic images in the world.
