The third Epson International Pano Awards is dedicated to the art of panoramic photography. Advances in digital photography and software such as PTGui and Adobe Photoshop has resulted in an explosion in image stitching, especially in the panoramic format. Panoramic film photography also remains alive and well.
The Epson International Pano Awards showcases the work of panoramic photographers worldwide and is the largest and most important competition for panoramic photography.
The 2011 competition saw 3,586 images submitted from 985 photographers in 62 countries.
The 2012 competition is now open for all professional and amateur photographers with an increased combined prize pool of more than US $25,000 in cash and prizes!
Prizes include an Epson Stylus Pro 7900 printer, an Epson Stylus Pro 4900 printer, an Epson EB-1775 Ultra-Slim Projector and US$5000 cash.
2011 saw the successful introduction of a new VR/360 category for ‘immersive’ panoramic photography. The competition also presented a display of winning and high scoring images at the PMA Photo Imaging trade show in Sydney in June, which was attended by tens of thousands of people.
The judging panel includes some of the world’s top panoramic photographers and industry professionals, including members of the IAPP and IVRPA.
