World Photographic Cup 2020 and 2021 News
As COVID-19 continues to spread worldwide, with cases surpassing 10 million, the World Photographic Cup governing committee is taking steps to ensure the 2020 individual medalists and team winners receive the celebration they deserve. The committee announced that the WPC 2020 Awards Ceremony will be held virtually in a highly celebrated online ceremony to be held as planned on Monday, September 28th. At that time, all of the top 10 creators in each of the six WPC categories will be announced – along with the bronze, silver, and gold medalists in each category. The top 10 teams worldwide will also be announced, including the 2020 World Photographic Cup winner.
“Of course, circumstances all over the world are forcing us to change things,” says World Photographic Cup CEO, Giuseppe Scozzi. “But we refuse to change our enthusiasm for the amazing creators who have reached the pinnacle of the photographic world. This won’t just be an online meeting – we are planning a special virtual ceremony for our individual and team winners.”
Recognizing that an online ceremony can never fully replace an in-person event, WPC will give award recipients and team winners the additional option of attending a special ceremony held in conjunction with the 2021 award ceremony. That event will take place April 19th, 2021 in Rome, Italy. “We want our winners to be celebrated, so we will stage two ceremonies back-to-back,” said judging committee chairman, Don MacGregor of Canada. "The first will give 2020 winners the opportunity to stand on the podium and receive their medals and awards. The second will be for the 2021 winners. Both will be the same, except we’ll already know the outcome of the 2020 event.” Awards will be shipped to those creators who choose not to attend the ceremony in Italy next April.
