WPC winners announcement 2022 postponed to May 2nd

The new dates and why that…

The Governing Committee of the WPC set a new date for the awarding of the winners of the 2022 edition of the World Cup of Photography and celebrating the winners of the editions 2020 and 2021.

The new date: Monday, May 2nd

The WPC made that decision in order to favouring and encouraging the participation of a higher number of winners, especially from Extra-European countries, still subject to travel restrictions for Europe.

We apologies for any inconvenient these changes might cause to someone, but we ask you to understand that the WPC Governing Committee at times must take tough decisions to ensure WPC running smoothly and its survival, struggling with a pandemic.

In any case, we are pleased to announce that the WPC ROMA 2022 event program will take place in Rome, Italy from Saturday April 30th  to Tuesday , May the 3rd
