Nikon offers 1.5 million Yen in kit and cash as top prize in annual photo contest

Recommended Posts

Nikon has opened the doors to entries for the company's annual photo contest, and is offering a top prize of 1m Yen (approx. $9200/?5600/?7100) in equipment with 500,000 Yen cash for the overall top prize. Running since 1969 the competition this year will feature 7 categories including a new 'Home' theme and a 'Generation N' section for 10 entrants aged 19 and under. With themes that include work in video as well as stills, Nikon has for the first time opened the competition to digital images captured on any digital imaging device ? including smartphones, camcorders and medium or large format cameras.

 

Scanners are once again not classed as 'digital devices', so images captured on film will not be eligible for entry, despite that Nikon F6 and FM10 film cameras are listed as current products on the company website. 

The panel of 17 judges will be led by Stephen Mayes, the Executive Director of the Tim Hetherington Trust and Secretary to the World Press Photo competition, who will head the photography categories. John C Jay, who was voted among the top ten most influential Art Directors of the Past 50 Years by the readers of Graphic Design USA, will head the judging panel for the video categories.

 

Open to professional and amateur photographers around the globe, the competition attracted 99,339 entries from 153 countries last year. You have until 15th December 2014 to enter.
