The PhotoEd Platform is a new innovative project that inspires and promotes emerging Canadian contemporary photographers. The project will primarily function online, with live events as community touch-points. We are invested in developing a community of people for the ethical treatment of photography.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

The PhotoEd Platform creates connections between fresh image creators and seasoned industry experts, and includes the community at large. We want to show off and share new photography with everyone in Canada AND give back to the community.

By creating an online gallery/ marketplace curated by experts in the field, the NOURISH COLLECTION looks to demonstrate what’s possible through collaboration.

Images will be available for sale online in November as:

  1. Low-res digital images for PERSONAL use as desktop/ mobile wallpaper. 100% of the profits from these sales will be donated to FOODBANKS CANADA.
  2. High-res images available for commercial license.

World Photographic Cup - Canadian Call for Entries

 

SUBMISSION DEADLINE:  July 15 – August 31, 2016

All Canadian professional photographers are invited to submit images for consideration as part of Team Canada’s entry!  

The World Photographic Cup (WPC) is a global photography competition, launched as a vehicle to universally share photographic style, encourage image excellence and create friendships across all diverse cultural environments. The WPC is a not-for-profit organization. Its singular goal is to unite photographers in a spirit of friendship and cooperation.

The Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC) is the submitting association and all Canadian professional photographers are invited to submit images to create the best possible team entry for Canada. 

Visit the World Photographic Cup to learn more about this worldwide competition.

WHY PARTICIPATE?

The World Photographic Cup is like the Olympics of photography. It is the only international photographic competition where a professional photographer can represent his or her country. This alone should make anyone proud of participating.

There are many important international competitions like World Press, Sony Awards, National Geographic, etc. In competitions such as these, you enter for yourself – for the recognition, the prizes, the fame and the glory. However, for the World Photographic Cup – you do it for your country.

Each country (28) entering the WPC strives to put together the best of the best to represent them. This is why Canada needs your talent and your creativity to succeed! Submit your images.

The top ten images in each category will be showcased globally in various media forms.

Representing Canada could bring:

  • Pride in your work, creativity and talent.
  • Curiosity in your creative work by potential clients.
  • The prestige of representing Canada at this international competition.
  • Media coverage as part of Team Canada’s entry.
  • Canadian Certificate of Achievement.
  • WPC Certificate of Achievement for Top 10 Finalists.

Don’t miss the chance to represent Canada, and compete for individual gold, silver and bronze medals in all six WPC categories. Plus, Team Canada as a whole will be eligible to win the 2017 WORLD PHOTOGRAPHIC CUP.

WPC CATEGORIES

Canada will forward 3 images in the following categories to the WPC for a total team entry of 18 images.

1) Portrait

2) Wedding
