PPA-led Team USA Looks to Defend Title


The medalists for Team USA at this year's World Photographic Cup (WPC) have been announced and it looks like Team USA will be in the running to keep the title it won last year.

Team USA has placed four medalists out of a possible 18--tied with Portugal for most at this year's competition. Team USA's four medals were earned by two PPA photographers. Iowa photographer Ben Shirk, M.Photog.M.Artist.Cr., an Imaging USA and PhotoVision speaker, will earn three medals in three different categories (illustrative, portrait and wedding). Wisconsin photographer Kenneth Martin, M.Photog.Cr., CPP, of Wisconsin, earned a medal in the landscape category, rounding out the medal haul for the stars and stripes.

"We're very proud of the stunning images created by PPA photographers for Team USA this year," said David Trust, PPA CEO. "This competition is really all about the fellowship of photographers from all over the world. That being said, we're excited about our chances to keep the cup in the U.S."

While the WPC committee announced this year's medalists, they did not reveal what color medal they will receive, building the suspense to the second annual event, to be held April 12 in Montpellier, France.
