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!
“It’s such an honor to join so many of our nation’s greatest creators to represent this amazing country. What a thrill to be part of the 2021 team – I am enamored with the talents of the people I’m surrounded by!”
