Nations from around the globe participate in the World Photographic Cup, an international competition in which a team of photographers represent their home country.
For Team Canada, the grueling 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.
All Top 10 finalists are now in the running for individual Gold, Silver, or Bronze medals and depending on their final ranking, these images have the chance to help Team Canada win the World Photographic Cup!
Since 2018, the World Photographic Cup awards the Best of Nation Award to the authors of the highest scoring images from each of the participating countries. “The amazing images of our Best of Nation award winners show the outstanding standard of our competition and the immense talent of the professional photographers around the world”, said Giuseppe Scozzi, WPC, CEO.
“The world thinks our Canadian vistas are exotic so why not show it off.”
Canada’s 2018 Best of Nation award winner is Paul Wright from Whistler, BC. His dramatic black and white mountain image, is also a World Top 10 finalist in the reportage category. Paul is now looking for a podium finish at the World Photographic Cup and we wish him all the best for the WPC awards ceremony, taking place in the spring in Portugal.
