The World Photographic Cup is fast becoming the most important photographic competition in the world today. Last year they showcased the very best in contemporary photography from 32 countries including USA, China, Finland, Mexico & Russia amongst many others. There are six different categories and Australia were last year's winners overall.



In past years United Kingdom has been purely represented. It’s time for the BIPP to put the United Kingdom back on the map. In the spirit of 1966 lets bring the world cup back Britain!!!



The 2020 WPC ceremony will be held in Rome and Martin Baynes has asked me as team captain to gather a squad of the best talent that United kingdom have to offer. I would like to ask the whole membership to offer up their very best images so that we can choose a world beating team entry. You can offer an image in just one category or several if you prefer. The rules state that there is no time limit for when the image was taken so you can select your very best images for consideration as long as you are the original artist and hold the copyright to allow its usage.



The team can enter up to three images in each category but no photographer can enter more than one image in a single category so we are after just your very best images for each category. Feel free to enter up to three of you best images in any single category and we will decide which we feel is the best one. You can enter just one image for a single category or up to three images for each, the choice is yours. We will then decide the final images to be put forward based on the very best available.



The Categories are:



Commercial

Illustration/Digital Art

Portrait

Reportage/Photoournalism

Nature/Landscap/Wildlife

Wedding



Please take a look at http://www.worldphotographiccup.org/wpc-2020-rules-regulations/ to get a feel for the requirements and whilst you are there have a look at some of the past winners in the Galleries section of the site.



We need to get three excellent entries in each category to have a chance at being up there on the podium so let's see what you’ve got.





Please register or log in if you already created a profile for the print competition at http://awards.bipp.com/world-photographic-cup-2020-qualifiers/ 

You can upload three images in one or all categories



We need to receive your entries by 1st August so that we have enough time to carefully select our entries. We will then reveal the final team by 1st September. Please send your entries as soon as possible to avoid a last minute rush.



LETS MAKE BRITAIN GREAT AGAIN…PHOTOGRAPHY'S COMING HOME!



Good luck!
