Team USA 2023 Announced for World Photographic Cup

Twenty-two photographers will represent the United States in the 2023 World Photographic Cup. The goal of the international competition is to unite photographers in a spirit of friendship and cooperation via a one-of-a-kind battle for the top prize. Teams enter up to three images in each of eight categories: Commercial, Illustrative, Illustrative Portrait, Landscape, Natural Portrait, Reportage, Wedding, and Wildlife.

Finalists and the Best of Nation Awards, which honor the top scoring image from each country, will be announced at Imaging USA 2023 in Nashville, Tennessee.

World Photographic Cup winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in Singapore on March 17, 2023.

Founded in 2013, WPC is administered by Professional Photographers of America and the Federation of European Photographers with support from additional international photographic organizations.
