Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., has announced the ten winners of its World Creative Imaging Competition (WCIC), launched to identify global creative talent and the creative names of the future within world-class art schools.
 
The competition involved selecting students from some of world’s most prestigious art schools and offering them the chance to convey their ‘creative moment’ through the use of the new Samsung NX10. Following an online vote which allowed the public to become ‘fans’ of the entrants, images created by the ten winners were unveiled at the industry-renowned Photo and Imaging Exhibition 2010 in Seoul, Korea. The images from the final ten winners can be viewed here.
 
In a unique and unprecedented partnership, Samsung joined with art schools throughout six countries, including the UK, France, Germany, USA, Korea and China, to launch the competition to 120 of the world’s most creative students. These included aspiring artists, designers and architects. The competition provided an unparalleled opportunity for talented young people to showcase their creativity by leveraging the functions and capabilities of the newly launched NX10 camera.
 
Samsung created this unique opportunity in order to identify the artistic talent of the future and enhance students’ creative process capabilities through the use of the NX10. The advanced technology and feature set of the NX10, including its compact design, an APS-C sized CMOS sensor, fast and precise Auto Focus, large three-inch AMOLED screen, and easy to use UI enabled students to focus completely on their creative vision when taking their images.
 
The winning images include an aerial shot, which was achieved by raising the NX10 with a helium balloon to create miniature effects; a cityscape enhanced with color and shape; and the development of imaginary landscapes.
