Each year, the best-of-the-best from around the globe compete for the honor of winning the World Photographic Cup. Like the Olympic Games, the Cup awards individuals’ images with gold, silver, and bronze medals. Then, teams earn points based on an aggregate score of the top ten images in all categories. The World Photographic Cup is awarded to the national team that receives the highest overall score.
To find out the top ten finalists in each category, as well as the Best of Nations, watch this year’s Grand Imaging Awards ceremony (the WPC section starts at the 37-minute mark).
