Atlanta, GA—Vivid-Pix, the Imaging Alliance and the Family Motor Coach Association announced the Cross Town/Cross Country photo contest for National Photo Month. (FMCA is an international organization for families who own and enjoy the use of RVs.)
To commemorate photography, May is National Photo Month. Officially recognized by Congress in 1987 as a monthlong event, National Photo Month is a time to recognize that the best photo moments can be created at home, in towns large and small, and in travels across the U.S.
It’s in that spirit that consumers are invited to enter photos of their local community, historical photos of their families and photos taken in U.S. National Parks. One grand prize winner will be awarded a $500 U.S. savings bond. In addition, three first-place category winners will receive a U.S. National Parks annual pass. The three categories are: Around Town; Last Century; and Treasured Parks. Contest judging will be conducted by the board of the Imaging Alliance, an international nonprofit representing leading imaging companies. Members include Canon, Fujifilm, Humaneyes, Manfrotto, National Geographic, Nikon, Noritsu, Olympus, Panasonic, Sigma, Sony, Tamron, Unibind, Vivid-Pix, Western Digital and more. Leading photo retailers and service providers, like Shutterfly, Roberts Camera, Mike’s Camera, Hunt’s Photo & Video and APPO, are also association members.
Moreover, to bring photos to their best quality, imaging improvement software provider Vivid-Pix is offering contest entrants 10 free fixes. Entrants can use any of Vivid-Pix’s software. Vivid-Pix Restore for Windows/Mac applies one-click color and contrast correction. Also, intuitive fine-tuning sliders improve scanned prints, slides, documents and digital photos.
In addition, Vivid-Pix Land & Sea and Land & Sea Scuba software for Mac/Windows provide one-click improvement to photos with poor color, that are too dark, too light, backlit, hazy or tilted. They also work on photos taken underwater. Furthermore, Vivid-Pix Scuba provides scuba-depth correction and additional capabilities. It also processes RAW, DNG, TIFF and JPEG image formats.
