Canon U.S.A.’S Third Annual Photography In The Parks Photo Contest Kicks Off On Earth Day Seeking Inspirational Nature Images


LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., April 2008 – In a continuing effort to inspire Americans to visit their national and state parks and photograph their beauty, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, today announced a call for entries for the third annual Canon Photography In The Parks Photo Contest*. The contest invites eligible photography enthusiasts, from April 22nd to September 30th, 2008, to enter the contest by submitting images from any park or monument in America. Participants are invited to enter their “Inspirational Nature Images,” the theme for this year’s contest. Canon is also enhancing the photo contest by extending the age range of eligible participants to non-professional photographers ages 13 and up.

“A picture captures a moment in time, but the right picture triggers an emotional reaction within people. Through our Photography in the Parks Photo Contest, we want people to seek out those inspirational images and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors while doing it,” stated Yuichi Ishizuka, senior vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A. “As an environmentally-conscious organization, we encourage everyone to enjoy the beauty of nature, and also to work to protect it.”
