Epson is calling out for entries to The 12th Epson International Pano Awards, a competition dedicated to the art and craft of panoramic photography.
Outstanding submissions get a chance to win a US$40,000 prize pool, which includes $13,500 in cash and an array of prizes including a large format Epson SureColor P7070 printer, a large format Epson SureColor P5070 printer and an Epson EB-1781W ultra-slim projector.
Epson said the 2020 competition saw 5859 images submitted from 1452 photographers in 96 countries and these numbers are expected to be exceeded again this year.
Epson Australia general manager of marketing Bruce Bealby said, “Epson is delighted that we are able to support these amazing awards and the wonderful photographers who embrace them in challenging times.
“Not only does Epson enjoy a long, rich and successful history in the photographic industry with photographers of all levels, we also are very committed to the industry. As a result, we are very much looking forward to seeing the entries and how vibrant they look when printed out on Epson’s dedicated photo printers.”
The Epson SureColor-P7070 is a 24-inch large format printer and the SureColor P5070 is a 17-inch large format printer, both of which are designed for premium photo, fine art, proofing and packaging design.
They support a wide range of standard and specialist media in roll and sheet formats and feature a PrecisionCore Thin Film (TFP) head with Variable Sized Droplet Technology that enables the output of images in high resolution with superior fidelity and tonal gradation.
Both printers use Epson’s latest UltraChrome HDX all-pigment aqueous ink for accurate colour with an enhanced gamut, Dmax and image durability. The printers also use a 10-colour ink configuration with two levels of black, a choice of a third black or alternative Violet ink for outstanding colour and black and white prints with up to 99 per cent Pantone coverage.
