Winners of the Nikon Photo Contest announced
Nikon have announced the winners of the 2018-19 Nikon Photo Contest.
The annual contest, now in its 37th edition, received a record 97,369 entries across three categories, representing more than 170 countries and regions around the world.
For 2018/19, the three categories, open, next generation and short film each had a theme: 'Change' 'Identity' and 'Hope', respectively.
“The Nikon Photo Contest asks a lot of questions and one of the main questions was ‘what is the role of photography in the future?’ said Lead Judge, Neville Brody. "The world of photography is continuing to change in our lives, it’s on our phones and it’s everywhere we look. Our world has seen more images than words these days. It’s an international language and it changes and influences the way we are as a people and as a society.”
The winner of the Grand Prize, which will be selected from the Gold Prize winners in each category, will be announced at the awards ceremony on August 23rd in Tokyo, Japan. One entry will also receive the Participants’ Choice Prize and the Nikon Photo Contest 50th Anniversary Prize - a new prize implemented this year.
