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.
After months of meticulously curating their finest collections of photographic art, 35 nations from across the globe tuned in on January 17th to hear the Top 10 images from each of the six WPC categories announced virtually and Team Canada is thrilled to showcase our three 2022 World Top 10 finalists.
Canada’s Top 10 finalists are now in the running for individual Gold, Silver, or Bronze medals at the final WPC ceremony in Rome Italy on March 28, 2022. Depending on their final ranking, these images have the chance to help Team Canada win the World Photographic Cup!
Congratulations to three Canadian photographers who are Top 10 in the world.
In the Commercial category: Louis-Philippe Provost of Gatineau, QC with an architectural image that captures the Walt Disney Concert Hall’s striking facade with its stainless steel panels and adventurous curvature.
In the Nature Category: Deborah MacEwen of Warman, SK whose striking whale image is set against a background of majestic Alaskan mountains.
Also in the Nature Category: Michelle Valberg, of Ottawa, ON who knew intuitively that she had a memorable photo when a Spirit Bear pulled his head out of the water and shook, spiralling droplets around his head. Michelle’s image also received the Best of Nation Award as Canada’s highest scoring image.
“Everyone was thrilled to see our talented photographers be recognized on the world stage, the spirit of our team was evident.”
