WPC 10th Anniversary
It is difficult to imagine, but we are running the 10th WPC edition, so in Singapore we will also celebrate our 10th anniversary! It was on 2013 that the WPC had its first official meeting in Gmunden, Austria and, in January 2014 , the first World Photographic Cup was presented in Phoenix, Arizona. Our goal from the beginning has been to unite photographers worldwide in a spirit of unity and friendship. And in that, we have been more successful than we could have ever imagined. So, come celebrating with us this event in Singapore during the Gala Dinner and get the special commemorative award!
