World Photographic Cup - Call for Entries
« on: July 02, 2017, 06:28 PM »
Dear members of the News Photographers Association of Canada (NPAC).

You are officially invited to participate to the World Photographic Cup competition, Call for Entries. Call for Entries: July 1st to August 31st, 2017.

We are launching a new web site!
We are currently developing a new, dedicated web site for World Photographic Cup Team Canada. This web site will help to expand the Canadian entry and include professional photographers from all disciplines, from across the country. We are currently reaching out to other Photography Associations and Professional Photographers from coast to coast with the goal of assembling the strongest WPC entry possible, that represents the best that Canada has to offer.

The new web site is set to launch by the Canada Day Long Weekend. Yes, we will begin accepting entries on Canada’s 150th birthday. Visit www.worldphotographiccup.ca after July 1st for detailed information.

Why should you participate?
Because the World Photographic Cup is like the Olympics of photography.
It’s the only international photographic competition where a professional photographer can represent his or her country. This alone should make anyone proud of participating.

There are many important international competitions like World Press, Sony Awards, National Geographic etc, but in these competitions, you enter for yourself, for the recognition, the prizes, the fame, and the glory. But WPC you do it for your country. That being said, there is individual recognition and a lot to be proud of if your image is selected as part of Team Canada’s entry. Finalist are awarded a frameable certificate stating that your image was selected to represent Canada in the World Photographic Cup. This would surely be a center piece in any photographers’ trophy case.

We send press releases to news media across the country and in the past, our finalists have been rewarded with excellent national and local media coverage.

Each country (28) entering the WPC strives to put together the best of the best team entry. This is why Canada needs your talent, your creativity to succeed.  Help us make Canadian photography talent known on the world scene. Submit your images please!
