Epson’s “Finish Strong” Advertising Photo Contest: Winner to Be On-Set for Epson Ad


Long Beach, CA—Epson is continuing its Finish Strong advertising campaign, developed by M&C Saatchi Los Angeles, with a new photography contest. Photogs are invited to submit an idea for Epson’s next Finish Strong ad, and the winner will receive an opportunity to attend a photo shoot with world-renowned photographer Joe McNally or a $5,000 cash prize.

“Photographers have an uncanny ability to previsualize amazing photographs,” said Richard Day, group product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “This contest provides the chance for anyone to see their concept of a Finish Strong ad come to life. The winner will be in very good company with the likes of the photographers from previous ads, including Corinne Alavekios, Moose Peterson and Joe McNally.”

For the past three years, Epson has collaborated with some of the industry’s leading photographers to create the Finish Strong advertising campaign, which celebrates both the photograph and the photographer in pursuit of that final defining print. The Finish Strong campaign has captured some of the extraordinary lengths photographers will go to for the perfect shot: the intensity of a New York City fashion shoot; a portrait session waist deep in a Pacific Northwest river; air-to-air aviation over the searing heat of the Arizona desert; and underwater in the freezing conditions of the Antarctic Ocean.

Epson’s contest began on March 1 and ends on April 15. Entrants can participate by submitting 200 words or less describing their idea for Epson’s next print ad. The submission form and previous Finish Strong print advertisements can be found at
