The annual Worldwide Photography Gala Awards (WPGA) provides a juried competition for professionals and amateur photographers from around the world to compete for the Photographer of the Year Award and the Humanitarian Documentary Grant, provided by WonderPick Gallery. Besides conducting the annual contests, WPGA hosts quarterly contests that offer artists similar opportunities for awards and recognition.
WPGA hosts annual and quarterly contests to honor talented photographers and as a means of establishing and maintaining a continuing effort help them further their careers. WPGA recognizes artists’ talent through competitions juried by industry leaders, exposing their work in the media, publishing their work, hosting a collective exhibition in Madrid, and by exhibiting their work to an extensive international audience through WonderPick Gallery, an art portal where selected artworks can be viewed online and purchased.
WPGA believes in the social responsibility of all business endeavors. Accordingly, WPGA efforts also benefits worthy humanitarian causes. The first annual WPGA contest supports the international organization, Save the Children. Save the Children will receive 10 percent of the revenue from the Worldwide Photography Gala and 40 percent of the revenue from the sale of prints exhibited in Madrid.
