World Photographic Cup / Awards
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.
Nations across the globe, including Canada, meticulously curate their countries images to create a collection of 24 amazing images to enter in the World Photographic Cup. Of those a select few may make it to Top 10 in the World and have a chance to earn awards.
This year Holly-Lynn Latimour attended the WPC awards ceremony, held at the Frame Riverfront Hotel in Singapore on March 17th while the rest of Team Canada watched virtually. Together we celebrated Canada’s achievements and watched as Holly-Lynn walked on stage to collect a 10th place finish for her commercial image.
Team Canada is excited to celebrate Holly-Lynn’s success along with our other Canadian finalist, Ron Gesser, and we thank them for showcasing Canada on the world photographic stage.
“The experience of being 10th in the world and meeting my fellow photographers was amazing. The camaraderie and support of the international attendees was very touching and I am glad that I experienced the ceremony in person. Being a part of Team Canada was such an honour and I was so proud to be able to represent my country on the world stage.”

A commercial image makes the viewer fall in love with an object or a concept, etc. You can tell a hundred different stories through an object or a person and you have the ability to expand on these stories through the use of post production.
In the case of my image, I used lighting to sculpt and shape a soccer shoe to create a bold sense of power and then I used Photoshop to break up the shoe and create a unique perspective. By breaking it down, the viewer can see all the different parts of the shoe individually and see all of the working parts that make it a work of art in itself. We wear shoes all the time, for every occasion, and I wanted to showcase how much thought goes into making these products in an interesting way.
