This competition is a great platform to develop skills and express art, so kudos to Canon for putting in the effort in making this challenge a yearly affair, said one contestant. The competition is overwhelming with so many submissions.
It’s an experience that really opened my eyes to the many different ways of taking and interpreting a picture, said another.
After Hanoi, the contest will continue at Quan Khu 7 Stadium in Ho Chi Minh City on October 15 and the Tien Son Sport Centre in Danang on October 22.
The overall winner will receive an all-expense paid 8-day trip to Japan to participate in a photo clinic. Others will walk away with a list of big-ticket products such as a Canon EOS 5D Mark III or PIXMA PRO 100 photo printer.
