Canon USA Launches “Why Do You Love Football” Photo Challenge

Canon USA Launches �Why Do You Love Football� Photo Challenge

The Grand Prize winner in Canon USA’s “Why Do You Love Football” photo challenge will be awarded a trip for 4 people to attend the Super Bowl XLIV in South Florida.

The nationwide amateur photo contest has two categories; “Action” and “Feature.” The “Action” category focuses on any image that captures football action during game play, while the “Feature” category comprises any football imagery outside of game action on the field. In addition to the adult division, there will be a contest for teens, ages 13-18 as well.

In honor of all photos submitted into the contest, Canon will donate $150,000 worth of products, including EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR Cameras, PIXMA MP560 Wireless Photo All-In-One Printers and VIXIA High-Definition Camcorders, to the NFL YET Centers, while also educating NFL YET Center staff and students in the art of photography and digital imaging.

Deadline for submission of entries is on December 2, 2009.
