Atlanta, GA—KEH is calling all professional sports photographers and weekend warrior enthusiasts to enter the inaugural KEH sports photography competition. KEH, a premier purchaser and reseller of preowned camera gear, kicked off the KEH Sports MVP Awards (Most Valuable Photo) on January 29. Moreover, the annual creative contest asks sports photography enthusiasts of all levels to showcase their perfect sports shot.
“We are excited to launch the KEH Sports MVP Awards as part of our commitment to celebrating the art and science of capturing the magical moments in the world of sports,” said Noah Treshnell, CEO of KEH. “This competition is not just about the perfect shot. We’re looking for shots with narratives told through unique perspectives.”
KEH Sports MVP Awards
Sports encapsulates the entire spectrum of human emotion from aspiration, dedication and perfection to jubilation, pride as well as defeat. And everything in between. Consequently, the photograph submitted can represent any sports-related moment (recreational or in-game) captured using a dedicated camera (not a phone camera) in the past 12 months.
The captured sport can be at any level, men’s and women’s. However, depending upon the total number of entries received, the company may further designate certain levels in future years. For example, KEH might break the categories down to 5–8 grade, high school, college, independent and pro.
Competition Timeline and Guidelines
The KEH Sports MVP Awards competition kicked off on January 29. Entrants will have until February 9 to submit up to five (5) standout shots. During this time, a panel of judges from KEH will carefully evaluate the entries based on creativity, composition as well as overall storytelling impact. Further, the company will announce the winners on February 25, 2024.
According to the contest guidelines, you may submit up to five shots per individual. In addition, you must label each entry with the specific make and model of the camera used. Only entries captured in the past 12 months with dedicated cameras are eligible. You cannot enter any images captured by a phone.
Plus, all individuals in each photo submitted must have approved the name, image and likeness for use in promotional purposes.
