World Photographic Cup

konkurrencen som afholdes World Wide, er som OL for fotografer

WPC, som er frugten af et samarbejde og ide i FEP (Federation of European Professional Photographers) og PPA (Professional Photographers of America). Danmark har haft fotograflandshold med fra starten i 2013/2014, hvor der var 20 lande med. WPC har vokset sig stadig større og større, høster international anderkendelse og i dag er det et samarbejde imellem FEP, PPA, AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) og UAPP (United Asia Professional Photography).
Her otte år efter starten er antallet af deltagende lande allerede nu imponerende. Sidste år deltog 43 lande og det er stadig stigende.

Konkurrencen om de ærefulde medaljer og titlen som WPC vinder hold er blevet meget værdifuld.

At kunne sammenligne og måle sig med kollegaer fra andre lande er helt sikkert med til ”egen udvikling”, kreativitet og fremmer fotografiet, både nationalt og internationalt.

Hvert deltagerland, uanset størrelse, sammensætter et landshold som består af 3 og op til 18 fotografer.

I Danmark er det dff / Dansk Fotografisk Forening som koordinerer deltagelsen i WPC og sammensætter landsholdet. Nu er vi klar til at åbne for indsendelse til WPC 2022 konkurrencen i Danmark. Det er op til det enkelte land hvordan holdet sammensættes.

Hvert land kan deltage med 3 billeder i hver af de 6 kategorier:
