The 33rd Nikon Photo Contest International 2010-2011 will begin accepting entries from September 1 to November 30, 2010. Photographers may submit up to two entries in each of two categories. Grand prize is a Nikon D3S DSLR camera plus an AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED and AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED lenses.
Category A is open, it is a free subject category and Category B is entitled Energy. Photos of any subject or theme are invited for the free subject category. Entries for the â€œEnergyâ€ category should be photos that capture the energy of sights and subjects that inspire, motivate or excite. Images covering a broad range of subject matter from throughout the world are expected for both categories. Entrants may not enter the same photo in both categories simultaneously.
Nikon said images captured with a digital still camera (excluding that captured by medium-format and larger digital cameras) and image data created by scanning an image captured with a film camera (35mm or APS) will be accepted. Images that have been digitally enhanced or edited with software will also be accepted.
The previous 2008-2009 Nikon Photo Contest attracted more than 51,000 photo entries from more than 18,000 photographers from 153 countries.
