Nokia, PDN, Fuji/NG Contest Calls
A couple of contest calls have crossed our desks recently. First up is the much-hyped Fujifilm/National Geographic competition called "Morning, Noon and Night," (site opens 15-May-2006) and the prize is certain to draw many entries - the grand-prize winner will enjoy an all-expenses paid trip to the UK to shoot a Fujifilm advertisement with pro shooter Bill Hatcher. A free Fuji FZ30 and the three-page ad's appearance in a National Geographic issue is icing on the cake.
Next up is another UK based contest - the Nokia Citizen Journalism Awards. Amateurs who have had a video clip or still photo published in one of the qualifying news, broadcast or web service in the last 12 months are eligible to enter. Prizes include Nokia cameraphones and subscriptions to online photo galleries. But the judging will be tough with a panel composed of veteran editors from UK Channel 4, BBC, CNN and the Financial Times.
Finally, PDN has the lowdown on a host of contests for photojournalists, including the well known World Press Photo, Pictures of the Year International and Best of Photography competitions.
