Nikon has announced the return of its bi-annual international photography competition - Nikon Photo Contest 2020-21 - for professional and amateur photographers. The Nikon Photo Contest 2020-21 will feature a photo and a short film competition, both of which will accept entries in the 'Open' and 'Next Generation' categories.

Categories:

The theme for the Open category is 'Connect' where those behind the lens will be asked to explore the meaning and significance of communication, as well as the bonds that connect people to the world. Through their imaging, photographers should express their unique perspective on the 'connection' they experience around them.

The 'Next Generation' category, open to photographers 25 years old and younger, will focus on 'Passion'. The very meaning of the word evokes action, elicits empathy, and has the power to change the future. At times, it can even move the world, which is what this category is all about. Judges will be looking for those images which convey a strong sense of pure and devoted passion, whatever the subject.

Prizes:

  • Grand Prize: 500,000 yen in cash.
  • Excellence Award:
  1. Photo Competition (2 winners): Z 7II, NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S
  2. Short Film Competition (2 winners): Z 6II (with RAW Video Output Function), NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S, NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S

Judging Procedure:

  • After all entries for the photography and short film competitions have been received, they will undergo the first round of judging, and all successful entries will be posted on the competition website (scheduled for May 2021). Winners of each award will then be decided after the final round of judging (June 2021). Contest results are scheduled to be announced on the website by July 2021.
