World Photographic Cup / Awards
The World Photographic Cup is a competition in which a team of photographers represent their home country. The photography family (or Camera-derie!) 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. 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.
Team Canada is very proud of it’s success and would like to thank all the volunteers, curators, partners, and photographers who make our country’s entry possible. Our goal is to continue showcasing Canadian photography on the world stage.
All Canadian Photographers, professional and amateur, are invited to submit images to Team Canada for consideration in next year’s competition. Entries are accepted in July and August.
