Dear colleagues

The 5th World Photographic Cup is coming soon: are you ready for a new exciting ride?

Registrations will open on July 1st, therefore, it’s time to start to create your new national team for the edition 2018!

As always, it will be up to the team captains to log-in, submit the pictures, indicate the name of  the national judge and confirm the registration with the payment of the entry fee, which is 400 Euros per team, as it was last year.

Please respect the deadline of September 30th . (You will be able to enter through our new starting from July 1st.)

Briefing meetings!

To facilitate your job, this year we have scheduled 2 online briefings (using the “go to meeting” facility), on July 17th at 09:00 CET (Central Europe Time), and repeated on July 19th at 22:00 CET.  You will receive a special invitation and a link. Make your favourite choice considering your timeline, but please do not forget to attend this event. It will help you to point the helm towards SeaWorld – Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, where hopefully, on May 6th 2018 , your team members and your team itself, will be receiving the prestigious finalist certificates, the amazing medals,  and why not grabbing the big trophy!

New award!Rules are not changed this year, but we are happy to introduce the NEW WPC Nation Awards. This will be given to the authors of  the highest scored image of each and all entered teams! So, if everybody is a winner entering the WPC, this is now true more than ever!
