Hitting the beach this summer? Might as well win a new camera kit at that.
Nikon is partnering with Surfing Australia to hold the Nikon Surf Photo and Video of the Year Award, honouring the best works from surf photographers and videographers.
The award is open to Australian residents, and the images can be taken anywhere in the world in 2018 across the categories of action, lifestyle/portrait and scenic photography.
The winners will be picked by a panel of judges, including seven-time champion of the Women’s World Surf League Tour and Nikon Ambassador Stephanie Gilmore, based on the following criteria: innovation and creativity; dramatic affect and sensory impact; uniqueness; and composition of the photo.
“Surfing is in the DNA of every Australian – even if you can’t actually surf yourself, there’s no way that you don’t get a thrill from seeing the incredible untamed power of the ocean,” said Gilmore. “As a photographer myself, I look forward to seeing how Aussie’s capture the surf for this year’s competition.”
The winner of the Surf Photo of the Year will get a Nikon Z 7 kit, and the winner of the Surf Video of the Year will get a Nikon Z 6 kit.
You can enter up to three photos and two videos until submission closes on February 15. For more info, visit the website.
