The Professional Photographers of Canada announces their participation in the inaugural World Photographic Cup. World Photographic Cup intends to search for excellence - world wide- in a new and special way! Photographic associations have been invited to send a national TEAM ENTRY to represent their highest standard of photographic excellence and PPOC will be sending the Canadian entry. The World Photographic Cup was conceived and launched by FEP (Federation of European photographers) and PPA (Professional Photographers of America) as vehicle to globally share photographic style, image excellence and create friendships across a diverse cultural environment. PPOC Chair, Jillian Chateauneuf, says “PPOC is thrilled to have the opportunity to participate. I truly believe our photographers can compete internationally and am excited about sending a national entry.” PPOC will select images from their 2013 loan collection, which represents the finest images from the recent PPOC salon competition. Judging will take place in November and the first presentation of the World Photographic Cup and the 18 medal winners will take place in January 2014 at Imaging USA in Phoenix Az.
