September 24, 2019 – alike Editorial Team

The first ever Nationwide PhotoWalk Challenge hosted by Canon is set to occur this coming September 28, 2019 in partnership with the Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation.

“This year, we at Canon hope to put the spotlight on the distinct aesthetic variations found all over the country. We want to celebrate the Philippines’ rich landscapes, bustling cities, and diverse culture, and challenge Filipino photographers to look beyond the usual and capture visuals from their unique and diverse perspectives,” said Benny Yu, Canon Marketing (Philippines), Inc.’s (CMPI) Head of Consumer Imaging and Information division. 

The theme and required camera setting will be announced to the participating camera clubs at 8:00am on September 28, 2019. Photos taken using any Canon camera (DSLR, mirrorless, point-and-shoot) and without any editing will be accepted. Each participant is allowed to submit one (1) entry only (1MB to 3MB, JPEG format, full-color) with the following details: full name of participant, address, contact number, email address, and camera club to canonphotowalkph@gmail.com on the day of the event.

Submitted entries will be judged according to creativity & skills (30%), technical requirement (30%), adherence to the theme (20%), and message & impact (20%). The Canon Nationwide PhotoWalk grand winner will receive a Canon M50 with 15-45mm lens while the 1st and 2nd runner up will receive a Canon EOS M100 with 15-45mm lens and PIXMA G-1000 Printer respectively.
