Sigma Sponsors Nature’s Best Photography Contest

Sigma Sponsors Nature’s Best Photography Contest

1022

Sigma Corporation of America has announced a partnership with Nature’s Best Photography Students magazine to, as they explain, “Empower young photographers and provide a forum where they can share their images.”
 
The company, which is preparing to launch the DP2, a follow-up to the pocket-sized DP1, that packs the power of DSLR into a point-and-shoot body, is sponsoring the Nature’s Best Photography Students Photo Contest, a bi-annual competition to identify some of the world’s most talented, fledgling photographers. As a sponsor of the contest, Sigma Corporation has provided funding for its management and an array of products to be doled out to its winners.
 
“As a company that has been around for more than 50 years, we’ve seen generations of photographers leave their photographic footprint in the industry,” said Mark Amir-Hamzeh, general manager of Sigma Corporation of America. “It is imperative that we nurture the work of our future photographers and provide them with the resources they need to grow and learn as young artists. Nature’s Best Photography Students is a wonderful publication that does this really well, and we are honored to partner with its founders in these efforts.”
 
Anyone under the age of 21 is welcome to enter the next Nature’s Best Photography Students Photo Contest by submitting up to 20 images for consideration between May 15 and Aug. 15 via the online submission form at www.naturesbeststudents.com/takeaction/. Participants will be asked to pay a one-time entry fee of $10 and parental permission is required. One grand prize winner and a number of honorable mention winners will be awarded in the publication’s online edition on Nov.15. Prizes will include sponsor-donated photography equipment and gift certificates, as well as the online publication of the winners’ images.
