WPC is pleased to announce for 2024 the Reportage category has been split to now include a separate Sports category and the Wedding category has been split into Wedding Photojournalistic and Wedding Open categories. These new categories have been added to the existing categories of Commercial, Illustrative/Digital Art, Nature/Landscape, Nature/Wildlife, Portrait Natural, Portrait Illustrative. In total there are now 10 categories – meaning 10 Gold medals up for grabs – showing that the World Photographic Cup is growing in strength and popularity every year.

WPC is a proud global photographic competition. It is important to read the rules as many new changes have been introduced for the 2024 Edition. These include:

The WPC is a PHOTOGRAPHIC competition, all elements used in images or composited images must be made by the submitting photographer. All images/image elements must be created by the submitting photographer. The use of stock images or image elements created using AI/CGI are not permitted.

Image Editing Tools that are based on machine learning to retouch or modify the submitting photographer’s image are allowed when using image elements created by the same photographer. No modification or use of third-party images not captured by the submitting photographer is allowed.

During the initial Validation, before judging begins, the WPC Validation Committee will screen images for relevance to Categories and rules to confirm eligibility.

The WPC Validation committee may at any time (before, during and after the competition) request original files (Raw or JPG that includes original Camera EXIF data) and an explanation of the circumstances under which the image(s) where made to confirm eligibility. Such request will always be made after the Top 10 announcement for all Top 10 and Best of Nation images to confirm eligibility. 

Images created under the direction of an instructor, photography coach or at a photographic workshop are not allowed.
