Presenting the WTC and WFCC is a photographic challenge. After every World Championships we consider the different options available to us in showing photos of the inspiring work of the competitors as well as events and camaraderie between those who had the opportunity to attend. Each show we have so many attendees come up to Kathy and me and our staff who say, “This is my first World Show and I will not miss another!” Others impassionately say, “I have attended every show since the one in Reno…” or one of the other World Show locations. Those comments are very meaningful to us, and we realize not everyone has the chance to see and attend this popular event which occurs only every two years.
It is our desire after each show to present it with impact from a publisher’s prospective. We want to make it exciting for those who did attend as well as for those who did not. We can only do this with photography that shows the inspiring work, enthusiasm of the attendance, and grandeur of the event. It is time for us to tell you how we get this great photography of the World Championships and for us to give immense thanks for their time, dedication, and efforts.
