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.
“What a tremendous honour being a part of Team Canada and being able to contribute towards Canada’s third place trophy! To be placed 6th in the portrait category was a shock – words escape me except to say Go Team Canada!”
Today as a team, we all gathered, watched, and cheered together as Ammara Sadiq placed 6th in the world in the Portrait category. The success of her ‘Swan Lake’ portrait of a beautiful ballerina helped secure Team Canada a 3rd place finish in the World Photographic Cup team competition.
