Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition

Epson Red Sea 2009 Photo Contest

epsonlogo3Epson Red Sea – “World of Underwater Images” Competition – combines the diving world with hi tech, photography with extreme sports, tourism with conservation, professionals with amateurs, stills and video.

The motivating spirit behind the competition is David Pilosof (Pilo), a veteran underwater photographer and creator of the renowned photo album, “Samantha”. Pilo has participated in many underwater photography competitions himself, and shaped the genre of underwater fashion and nude photography.

“I took part in many photography competitions, and it was very nice to win a few trophies and medals”, says Pilosof. “But I always felt that something was missing – some sort of a financial reward, a prize that could help and encourage photographers to continue joining those competitions and adventures. Epson, the international corporate for printers & imaging products, rose to the challenge, and allows us to run a prestige competition where underwater photographers have the chance to win cash prizes. I am proud to invite you all to Eilat, to take part in the competition and perhaps win the jackpot.”

Remember: We’ll meet on November 14th, 2009, 20:30 at Isrotel’s Yam Suf hotel lawn, and one of you will go back home with a check in the amount of $10,000 and 3 weeks of diving in Papua New Guinea!

Different categories in this underwater photography competition are granted with different prizes, which include: valuable cash prizes, expensive gear and diving vacations in dreamy destinations.
