Epson adds two new categories to its annual Colour Imaging contest

MUMBAI: Digital imaging solutions and printer manufacturing major Epson has rolled out its annual photography competition, which aims to encourage and promote digital imaging endeavours. The Epson Colour Imaging Contest 2005 is a pan Asian photography contest offers Indian photographers a chance to compete with the best in Asia and win international acclaim and big prize money.

Epson has introduced a few new categories this year in addition to the already existing ones. Two of the most interesting new sub categories include a Black and White Print Award, developed to acknowledge the work put in to capture expressions without the use of colour and a Camera Phone Snap Award, introduced in response to the latest trend in mobile phone imaging.



Apart from India, Epson is inviting participants from Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, China, Taiwan, Korea and Australia to take part in the contest.

Held since 1994, the contest is a way for Epson to help promote new forms of expression via digital printing and to create a rich, fun digital imaging culture. The contest has now grown well beyond Japan to become a truly international event.



Last year there were a total of 105,033 entries of which 51,477 entries were from countries other than Japan. There were a total of 1057 entries received from India for the contest last year. Epson expects the number of entries for this years from India contest to double at least. The total prize money on offer this year is approximately Rs 6.5 million.



Epson is giving participants the choice of three award categories including a Colour Imaging Award, a Nature and Human Life Photo Award and a Family Snap Award. Renowned Japanese photographers will judge all entries in Japan. The contest will be on from 1 June to 31 August.

Epson India head - brand and communication Tushad Talati said, "The Epson Colour Imaging contest is an annual feature that is gaining in popularity every year. Last year Indian photographers fared really well picking up eight prizes on offer including the Grand Prize Runner up. Lets hope there are a large amount of entries and winners this year as well."

Epson's Colour Imaging Contest 2005 award winners will be announced mid-December 2005 on the Epson website -
