A unique Olympic-style competition, the World Photographic Cup is not only about shutter speeds and composition, it’s about the spirit of friendship with 31 countries participating in 2024. For Canada, the process began last summer, when image submissions came in from coast to coast, vying for one of the 30 precious spots on WPC Team Canada.
On January 29th, Team Canada 2024 members gathered virtually to watch the Top 10 announcement live from Louisville, KY. The enthusiasm was infectious as team members were rewarded for their artistry. For the seven photographers that earned Top 10 accolades there’s more than skill at stake, it’s a podium finish that they dream of, not just for personal glory but to hoist the Canadian flag high. Come April, Canada’s Top 10 images will take center stage in Dallas, Texas, USA. The vibrant cultural hub will play host as photographers from across the globe gather to celebrate the finest visual narratives. The Canadian entries, each a masterpiece in its own right, will be in contention for medals, with the ultimate goal of bringing home the prestigious World Photographic Cup.
“I am extremely humbled and grateful to be in the Top 10 once again and congratulations to Team Canada’s other six talented photographers for their incredible images”
