CANON U.S.A. Photography in the Parks Photo Contest

canonphotographyparks2010.jpg (150 KB)From the eye of a storm to a flower floating down a stream, Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging, encourages Americans to acknowledge the beauty of nature and explore photography by participating in its fifth annual Canon in the Parks Photo Contest. From May 17 to September 30, 2010, contestants will have the opportunity to submit their best “Nature” image – the theme for this year’s contest.

The contest invites participants to compete within two divisions; the teen division, for entrants ages 13-17 and the adult division, for entrants ages 18 and older. With the fifth annual Canon in the Parks Photo Contest, Canon U.S.A. highlights all the splendor that nature embodies and invites photography enthusiasts to capture their best photo.

“We are thrilled to announce the fifth consecutive year of the Canon in the Parks Photo Contest,” stated Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. “From year to year, the entries have increased in quantity and quality, and this year, we look forward to seeing the work of even more talented, aspiring photographers.”

Canon in the Parks Contest
All applicants from the teen and adult divisions will be able to submit their photos through the contest page at the Canon Digital Learning Center Web site. To qualify, submitted photos must be taken at a park or monument in the United States. After entering their photos, entrants will have the chance to forward an e-postcard of their submitted images to friends and family as a fun way of sharing their artistic talents.

The winning photographers from each division will be announced in December and will be awarded with some of Canon’s latest photography equipment. Along with receiving Canon products, the Grand Prize winner will also receive a trip to a U.S. National Park of his or her choice, within the lower 48 states. To highlight the creative experience, all winning images and honorable mentions will be displayed on the Canon Digital Learning Center.
