- Competition 2019
The WPC was founded in 2013 as a cooperative effort by The Federation of European Photographers (FEP) and Professional Photographers of America (PPA). Its singular goal is to unite photographers in a spirit of friendship and cooperation. A Governing Committee has been created to conduct the ongoing affairs of the competition, also supported by UAPP (United Asian Professional Photography) and AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography). The brotherhood and sisterhood of photography is a bond that transcends language, culture, and geography. That’s the foundation behind the World Photographic Cup, an one of a kind international team competition. Sure, there are lots of other competitions, but there is just one World Photographic Cup.
After a second place last year in the home edition, in 2019 Team Australia wins its first WPC! Second place trophy went to USA, defending champion, with Mexico in the third place. In Norway, at the end of the celebration for the 125 anniversary from the foundation of the Norges Fotografforbund, the World Photographic Cup 2019 winners have been announced on April 8th in the historical “Drammens Teater”, in Drammen. The WPC competition is truly a global organisation unlike any other in professional photography. This year 32 national photographic teams entered the edition n.6 of this one-of-a-kind competition, from Europe, Asia, North & South America and Oceania. This was the most ever. All individual winners, the “Best of Nation” and the top 10 teams of the 2019 World Photographic Cup (WPC), have been announced and presented with their awards. The Ceremony has been broadcast online and watched from around the world. Click here to read the official results and see the winning images!
