Twenty photographers from across the country entered in World Photographic Cup
A Tsawwassen photographer is among the 20 photographers from across the country who have been named to Team Canada for a prestigious competition.
Stefan Malloch is representing Canada for the second time to compete in the World Photographic Cup. This unique Olympic style competition not only celebrates the world’s finest photographic art, but it also fosters the spirit of friendship and cooperation between photographers around the world.
“Really it’s a dream come true to be on Team Canada for the second time,” he said. “The first time was overshadowed my mom’s cancer diagnosis. Leslie Sharpe was my mom and a long time Ladnerite loved by the community. She was a photographer and inspired me. Photography helps me cope with trauma and life.”
The selected photographers represent professionals and emerging artists in all genres of photography. Each produced works which successfully navigated multiple rounds of curation to become part of Team Canada.
Last year Canada won a gold medal at the competition.
International judging has concluded and the top 10 images will be announced soon, with the main event winners announced in March at the World Photographic Cup finals.
