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!
“This is by far the highlight of my photographic career. Representing my country – there is no bigger source of pride and gratitude than that. I am beyond honored and extremely humbled to have been chosen. Go Team Canada!!”
Team Canada gathered virtually to watch the announcement of the Top 10 images in each of the World Photographic Cup’s six categories. While not able to travel to Rome, Italy due the pandemic there was no less excitement or anticipation by the artists selected to represent their country.
Team Canada is proud to announce that Ammara Sadiq along with 3 fellow Canadian teammates received a World Top 10 honour. Ammara’s Swan Lake image of a beautiful ballerina earned Top 10 in the portrait category.
With four photographers in the finals, Team Canada eagerly awaits the April 19th awards ceremony in anticipation of taking home Canadian medals, and finding out which nation wins the World Photographic Cup.
