Innovation is the watchword!
For the very first time, the Fujifilm Award for Innovation will be presented at the world-famous Mall Galleries, London in April 2017, at the Champagne Taittinger Awards evening for Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year, the world’s leading awards celebrating food photography and film.
This highly prestigious award will be given for a single image chosen from the 2017 shortlist – over 400 images selected from an overall entry of many thousands from across the world. In 2016, more than 7000 images were entered from 60 countries as entrants competed for the much-coveted overall crown.
“Fujifilm are renowned for their innovative approach to camera development, so we will be seeking an image that represents their philosophy and has shown a different way to achieve an exciting image,” says Andreas Georghiades, Marketing Manager, Fujifilm UK.
The exciting prize offers a range of magnificent opportunities for the winner - during a 6-month relationship with Fujifilm, they will have free loan of Fujifilm X-series products, promotion of their work through the Fujifilm social media channels and up to 10 exhibition quality prints, as well as potential commissions. http://www.fujifilm-x.com
