Last call for the Canon Photography in the Parks Photo Contest

September 3, 2009, 11:27 am

Through the Canon Photography in the Parks Photo Contest, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, encourages Americans to visit their national parks and photograph their beauty. This summer’s fourth annual contest called upon photography enthusiasts to submit their “Inspirational Nature Images,” the theme for this year’s contest. If you haven’t submitted a photo yet, you have until September 30 to submit an image.

Photos taken at any park or monument in America can be entered through the Canon Digital Learning Center website. New this year, Canon will have two contest divisions for photographers between the ages of 13 and 17, and a separate division for adults ages 18 and older. This will enhance the contest experience by allowing aspiring teen photographers to compete amongst their peers. 

After entering their photos through the Canon Digital Learning Center, potential contest winners will have the opportunity to forward an e-postcard of their submitted images to friends and family as a fun way to share their photographs. Winning photographers from the Photography in the Parks Photo Contest will receive some of Canon’s hottest photographic equipment.  Along with some of Canon’s hottest equipment, the Grand Prize winner will receive a trip to a National Park. 

Online visitors are encouraged to browse the Canon Digital Learning Center and take advantage of the various educational resources that Canon has to offer for novices and advanced photographers alike. The Canon Digital Learning Center provides a schedule for a wide variety of Live Learning classes across the country with renowned photographers as well as online resources and tips.  The site also features online tutorials for beginners and professionals to learn their way around a digital SLR camera and inkjet printer and unlock the full creative control of digital photography.
