Permanent Residents may now represent their country of residency.
The World Photographic Cup Governing Committee met to discuss the requests that had been received regarding eligibility for people with dual citizenship and/or Permanent Resident permits to represent their country of residency.
Effective immediately, Photographers having a permanent resident permit and desire to represent their country of residence may do so. If they later wish to represent their home country of citizenship – they will be required to wait only 18 months before being able to represent their other country in a WPC competition.
Photographers holding dual citizenship who wish to represent their other (passport) country will be required to wait only 18 months from previously representing their other citizenship country in a WPC competition. This time has been reduced down from a three year wait.
This may open opportunities for entries within your country. While it is a short notice, the Governing Committee felt that opening the door of opportunity was a benefit to all team captains.
With just five weeks left to assemble a Team, we are seeing interest from new countries and revived interest from others. It will be an exciting year with the plans for the award celebration to be held in conjunction with the TEXAS SCHOOL OF PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY Our hosts are going above and beyond for our event in April 2024.
If you have questions or need clarification on this matter, please reach out to the WPC CEO Kylie Lyons email@example.com
