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.
“A Top 10 world finish and Best of Nations Award is incredible – and unexpected. I am truly blessed to be part of this team,
GO CANADA GO!!”
Canada’s 2021 Best of Nation award winner is Louis-Philippe Provost from Gatineau, Quebec. His architectural image, featuring the beauty of the Ray and Maria Stata Center designed by Frank Gehry, and part of The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is also a World Top 10 finalist in the commercial category. Louis is now looking for a podium finish at the World Photographic Cup and we wish him all the best for the upcoming awards ceremony, taking place on April 19, 2021 in Rome, Italy.
