Nikon is calling for entries to this yearâ€™s Nikon Photo Contest International. This is the 33rd year of this worldwide competition.
Entries will be accepted between September 1 and November 30, 2010 and the winners announced in June 2011. The company said the 33rd Nikon Photo Contest International provides an opportunity for photographers of all levels to showcase their work and to contribute to photographic culture.
Entries for the 2010-2011 contest will be accepted for two categories. The first category is a free subject category (A) and the second is based around the theme, “Energyâ€ (B). 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 either the photographer or people who see the image.
A total of 53 prizes will be awarded: one photo will receive the Grand Prize, 16 photos from each category will receive first, second and third prizes; four photos entered by photographers aged 29 or younger will receive Emerging Talent Awards, and 16 Emerging Talent Award runners up will be selected.
The Grand Prize winner will receive a Nikon D3S digital-SLR camera and AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED and AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED high-end pro lenses. His/her winning photo will be featured on the Nikon Photo Contest International 2010-2011 website.
