World Photographic Cup statement on COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The World Photographic Cup is committed to providing a safe environment for its awards celebration. We are closely monitoring the recent developments in northern Italy, and have already met to map out a possible strategy should the situation there worsen significantly.  WPC organizers will always consider the side of caution.  If there is the slightest concern for the safety of attendees, the event will be either relocated or postponed.   Rome is not affected by the outbreak at this time, and there is no indication that it will be.  While we are monitoring the situation extremely closely, an objective and rational assessment does not warrant a change at this time.  As always, we urge attendees to make decisions that are best for them, and look forward to another exciting awards ceremony on March 23rd.

We urge WPC team captains in their respective countries to disseminate this information to their members.  We will also update this information on https://worldphotographiccup.org as necessary.
