The World Photographic Cup is an international competition and an opportunity for Canada to showcase its photographic art on the world stage. WPC Team Canada, along with the co-operative efforts of national associations like CAPA, creates a team entry that showcases our country’s highest standard of photographic excellence.
A fantastic pool of images, including many from CAPA members, gave the WPC Team Canada curators some challenges – too many great images to choose from! A high-powered team of 20 photographers and 24 images (three images in eight categories) will be sent to the international competition for judging.
Team Canada’s 2023 entry features Canadian photographers from across the country, including CAPA members Jacquie-Matechuk, Ron Gesser and Mike Winsor, and represents photographic artists in all genres of photography.
By the end of January, Team Canada will know how many of our country’s images have been selected as World Top 10 finalists. In March, those final images will be on stage in Singapore and be eligible to receive medals, with one country winning the coveted World Photographic Cup. We compete together in this unique Olympic style competition and all Team Canada photographers will be cheering on our finalists as they strive to secure a podium finish for our country.
“As in previous years, our goal is to reach the podium both as a team as well as individual photographers,” Team Canada co-captain Gerald David said. “Our hopes are high with a fantastic collection of images chosen by some great curators, including some seasoned CAPA judges. Thank you CAPA for your continued support.”
