Be the Judge: Canon National Parks Photo Contest

Running November 1- 7, you can have the chance to help select the winners of the Canon National Park Photo Contest. Of the nearly 10,000 images submitted by amateur photographers, a panel of esteemed judges have selected 10 photographs each from the categories of wildlife and landscape as finalists. Now Canon is looking to the photo community to help us choose the winners.

The finalists have been chosen by a panel of judges consisting of Canon Explorer of Light Lewis Kemper, Professional Photographers Rob and Ann Simpson, and Joel Saferstein of the American Park Network. The photos were judged based on originality, artistic composition, photographic technique and technical execution.

Visitors to the Canon Digital Learning Web site will help decide the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners of the photo contest by voting for their favorite landscape or wildlife photographs. Prizes such as a Canon EOS 5D Digital Camera kit that includes the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens, a PIXMA photo printer and a one-year membership to will be awarded to the winners. Of these two categories, the grand prize winners will receive a trip for two to the American National Park of their choice, plus Canon photographic product.
