Call for Entries – wedding & portrait photographers worldwide
Creative Asia Photography Awards 2011
ONLINE ENTRIES NOW OPEN
The Creative Asia photography workshop and conference is being held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from Jan 17 – 21, 2011. The Creative Asia Photography Awards for wedding and portrait photography is being run in conjunction with this event, and online entries are now open to all photographers worldwide.
The Canon Creative Asia Awards is revolutionary in its vision to evolve, include and educate its entrants. Entries are accepted online as digital images. The entries will be judged online in a preelimination round to determine the top 25 images in each of the 7 categories. There are 4 wedding categories and 3 portrait categories in the competition, and all images judged online will receive feedback from the judges.
The top 175 finalist images will be printed and mounted expertly by Epson. These prints will be hung on display in the “Epson Creative Asia Gallery” during the Creative Asia Conference. These 175 finalist images will be judged live by our panel of experts on January 19th 2011, from 8:30am – 4:00pm.
WHAT MAKES THE CANON CREATIVE ASIA AWARDS DIFFERENT FROM EVERY OTHER COMPETITION?
The whole judging event will be broadcast live online with video and audio of the judging panel, judges scores, image previews and interactive audience chat. Entrants can experience from their own location, the insight and education that comes from watching a live judging event.
In the final judging round there will be 4 judges and the original online category score will act as the 5th judge with the 5 scores will be averaged to produce the final score for each image.
The 4 judges will not know or be able to see the original online score.
The 4 winning Wedding images and the 3 winning Portrait images will be re-judged in their respective field to determine the Wedding Photographer of the Year and the Portrait Photographer of the Year.
