Calling all Photo Buffs. Think you take spectacular pictures? Well, if you do, or if you just enjoy taking pictures for the fun of it, why not enter the Maybank Photography Awards!
The Maybank Photography Awards is an initiative to establish a gold standard for photographic excellence. It is a collaborative effort between Maybank, Leica, Profoto and HP.
The theme is “Being Human” as the competition is looking to showcase the very values that make us what we are and who we are through the power of images. There are different entry categories – photographer of the year, street photography, studio photography, landscape photography and press photography. There’s also a special category of people’s choice award, where a winner will be selected from each shortlisted September’s and October’s submissions based on most votes received. The winners for this award are still eligible to win in other award category. So remember to submit as early as possible to garner votes and supports from your friends and families.
Since we travel quite a fair bit this year, we’ll be submitting our entries for landscape photography. Why not, since the competition is open to all photographers, including amateur ones. Now, should we do imperial past, centuries-old traditions, breathtaking wilderness or sun-crazed beaches?
The competition will run from 3 September – 31 October 2012. All submissions received within this period will be shortlisted for final judging and public voting. One (1) winner will be selected for each category and two (2) for People’s Choice Award. Prizes to be won includes:-
1 x Maybank Debit Card pre-loaded with RM 10,000
1 x Personalized Leica X2 Set
1 x Profoto D1 Studio Kit
1 X HP Designjet Z2100 24
1 x Maybank Debit Card pre-loaded with RM 5,000
2X RM 1,000
When it comes to capturing moments, artists and amateurs alike can do it, and now that just got better with Maybank Photography Awards!
