Canon Why Do You Love Football Amateur Photo Contest
Canon U.S.A., Inc, a leader in digital imaging, and the Pro Football Hall of Fame are inviting football fans to express their love for football through photography and submit their best youth football photos in the “Why Do You Love Football” Photo Challenge.
The image of a playful catch in the backyard or a game-winning score in the final seconds of a youth football game could earn the winning photographer a trip to attend Super Bowl XLIV in South Florida, the 2010 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Celebration and have their photo on display in the Pro Football Hall of Fame for one year.
The nationwide amateur photo contest features 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 13-17 as well. Parents, family members and friends are encouraged to enter up to 10 of their favorite youth football photos from September 3, 2009 to December 2, 2009 by visiting www.usa.canon.com/nfl and following the online entry instructions.
New to this year’s program is Canon’s support of the NFL’s Youth Education Towns (NFL YETs) across the country. Built in Super Bowl host cities as lasting legacies of the game, the 15 NFL YETs are education and recreation centers committed to making a positive, lasting difference in the lives of children. 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.
