Canon Europe Launches The Assignment

Canon The Assignment

Canon has launched The Assignment in Europe, a photography competition that challenges amateur photographers to submit their best work in one of four categories: Portrait, Landscape, Sport and Macro.

The Assignment invites participants from 19 European countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

The winning images from each country will be selected by a panel of judges from a shortlist winnowed down by online public voting. The country winners will receive €2,000 worth of Canon EOS kit as reward.

Each national category winner will then be judged against those from all other competing countries by an expert panel, chaired by award-winning reportage, portrait and travel photographer Vicki Couchman. The top two winners in Europe per category (Portrait, Landscape, Sport and Macro) will then be taken on a trip to Vienna, to experience the thrills of a match at UEFA EURO 2008 before competing head-to-head in a photographic shoot out.

The final four European category winners will win the opportunity to plan, then follow their own personal ‘dream assignment’ – each of which will be filmed for broadcast across Europe later in the year.
