Join the 4th International Filter Photo Contest 2014

Posted on Mar 08, 2014 in Events & Community, News: Camera Accessories, Kenko

 

 

Small as they are, filters plays an important role in helping us achieve a creative photo.

Now it's time to celebrate filters in the 4rd International Filter Photo Contest! From 1 February 2014 to 30 November 2014, this contest is open to all photo submissions, as long as the photos are taken with effective use of filters (any brand!), with the exception of protectors because their filter effects cannot be seen in photos.

This contest is sponsored by Kenko Tokina Group and they are looking forward to receive entries that explore the full expanse of the unknown possibilities of filters!

 

Application Prerequisites:

  • Anyone who has a photo taken with a filter can enter the contest, regardless of age, gender or nationality.
  • Entries are restricted to unreleased and unpublished original photos for which the copyright is entirely owned by the applicant. Photos that have won prizes in other contests or are being screened elsewhere are not eligible. (Photos that have been entered in another contest but have not been awarded a prize are eligible.) Photos that have been published in non-commercial publications, such as club exhibitions for which the photography was not remunerated, or websites operated by individuals.
  • Entries will be disqualified if the sponsor deems that the subject matter is in breach of the law, public order and morals, or the purpose of this contest.
  • Interested people who are under the age of 18 are requested to first obtain the approval of their parent or guardian before applying. If an applicant is under the age of 18, we assume that they have the approval of their parent or guardian.
