Dover, NJ—Casio America announced a photo contest that challenges consumers to find their inner artist. The contest, which takes places through July 19, is being hosted on the company’s Imaging Square group album on Photobucket.
To enter, consumers must first register for an account with Casio’s Imaging Square service (art.casio.com/fun), transform a photograph into a work of art using one of Imaging Square’s digital craft tools, and submit the image to the Imaging Square Sony TX55winners will each receive a Casio EX-ZR100 digital camera, valued at $299.99.
“Thanks to the advancements made in digital cameras, consumers’ creativity knows no bounds,” said Toshi Iguchi, senior general manager, Digital Imaging, Casio America Inc. “With our Imaging Square service, we now give consumers the chance to take that creativity even further. With just the push of a button, they can now create stunning pieces of art from any photograph they’ve captured, and from any camera—no additional knowledge of photo editing is required. We’re excited to share the unique capabilities of this service to all those participating and are looking forward to the creative entries we will receive.”
Imaging Square is designed as an easy-to-use online service that transforms photos into “pieces of art.” Registration and use of the online service is completely free of charge and requires no additional software. Imaging Square currently offers three different creative tools to help users convert images, including HDR-ART Craft, Virtual Painter and Casio’s Dynamic Photo editing. HDR-ART Craft leverages the same photo conversion technologies found in Casio’s latest digital cameras, such as the Tryx and EX-ZR100, to produce artistic, high-dynamic-range art.
Contest entries will be judged based on originality, creativity and adherence to the contest theme. Photos may originate in any format so long as they are submitted electronically. There is a limit of one entry per person using only one email address per day. casio.com
