"The WPC was founded in 2013 as a cooperative effort by The Federation of European Photographers (FEP) and Professional Photographers of America (PPA). Its singular goal is to unite photographers in a spirit of friendship and cooperation. A Governing Committee (from 7 different countries) has been created to conduct the ongoing affairs of the competition, also supported by UAPP (United Asian Professional Photography) and AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography). The committee is formed by Jean Felix Bernetel (France), Jørgen Brandt (Denmark) also Chairman of the Judging panel, Dennis Craft (USA), Don Dickson (USA), Kylie Lyons (Australia), Don MacGregor (Canada), Bent Nygaard Larsen (Denmark), Noboru Okamoto (Japan), plus Giuseppe Scozzi (Italy) in the position of CEO".
The WPC is a competition for teams of photographers who represent their home country. Each country is allowed to enter one team. This year the British Institute of Professional Photography lead the UK team. Organised by Bryn Griffiths as team captain he chose Richard Mayfield, Bryn Davis, Paul Coghlin, John Miskelly, Saraya Cortaville, Kevin Wilson, Tamsin Green, Bella West and two BA Alumni Pavel Tamm and Lee Howell.
