The WPC, originally planned on 23 and 24 March 2020 has been postponed due to the Corona virus outbreak.
A PROBLEM, A SOLUTION, AND A COMMITMENT TO UNITE THE WORLD
WPC regrets to inform that circumstances surrounding the continued spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) makes the rescheduling of the 2020 awards presentation ceremony imperative. WPC recognises that the situation has created difficulties for all involved and they applaud the Italian government for its proactive approach.
Having considered all options, it is with great pleasure that they announce that the 2020 World Photographic Cup event will go on in the face of adversity! The event will be postponed six months to the day. The awards ceremony will be held September 28th in Rome, Italy.
The new date will allow enough time for the current crisis to pass and will also help everybody to reschedule their trips, saving all costs incurred in advance.
This is the new calendar of the event WPC ROMA 2020 :
September Sunday 27th, opening and ceremony of the photographic Italian Awards.
Monday 28th educational classes and social program during the day, WPC awards (including the FEP Book Prize winners announcement) and party dinner in the evening.
Tuesday 29th, WPC meeting and opening of the WPC winners exhibition where all images are printed on ChromaLuxe panels. Meeting venues are Studio Orizzonte Gallery and Salone Margherita Theatre.
The event will be preceded and followed by two proposals of photographic trips to South of Italy and Tuscany.
