Nikon has decided to give a final call for entries for the company’s image competition called Nikon Photo Contest.
The Japan-based camera manufacturer has been holding a photography competition since 1969. A lot of photographers are holding this contest in high-esteem and they are including it on the “not to be missed” photo competition list. The 2012-2013 edition opened its entries last year on December 1st.
Nikon gives final call for entries for its photo competition
Entries for the competition can be submitted until February 28th, 2013. This is the reason why Nikon decided to announce a final call for entries. As the company reminded photographers to submit their photos, Nikon also recalled the four categories available to users worldwide.
The first category of the Nikon Photo Contest is for single photographs, the second is for composite photographs, the third is for photographic videos, while the last competition is for motion snapshots.
If Category A needs no introduction, then we will mention that Category B is aimed at photographers looking to submit series of two to five images. Category C is for 45 or less than 45 seconds videos, while Category D is intended for photos taken in the Motion Snapshot image file format available in Nikon 1 mirrorless cameras.
Amateur and professional photographers across the world are welcomed to submit their entries by February 28th, 2013.
