Entries for the 2020 Epson International Pano Awards are now open to amateur and professional photographers. The Pano Awards are one of the most highly regarded annual photography competitions. I love these awards because they fully embrace my favourite genre of photography – panoramas!
Every year I enjoy looking through the incredible entries. I am consistently in awe of the craftsmanship that both professionals and amateurs have put into their work. The Pano Awards are an absolute celebration of the hours of planning, patent waiting and eye for detail that goes into creating the perfect panoramic image. Often I see at least a couple of techniques that inspire me to get up early and head out to my favourite landscape locations.
Entry into the Epson International Pano Awards involves a small fee, but it is well worth it considering the great prizes on offer. For aspiring photographers it is also the perfect opportunity to see how their work compares on the world stage.
The winner takes home a $10,000 cash prize, but Epson have also provided some fantastic prizes that include an Epson SureColor P7070 printer, an Epson SureColor P5070 printer and an Epson EB-1781W ultra-slim projector.
