Nikon November 2013 Portrait Photo Contest

Submission Deadline: November 30, 2013

For more than 80 years, Nikon's legendary NIKKOR lenses have helped photographers focus on what inspires them. Now they want to see what inspires you.

A portrait is capable of telling volumes—the subtleties of a personality, the strength of a character, the essence of a moment all inexplicably captured in time. Submit your most story-rich portraits, be them of your mother, child, neighbor or pet. Nikon is looking for portraits that are beautifully executed and that tell a story with a single view.

The judges’ top pick will win a pro-caliber NIKKOR FX-Format lens. Each entrant may upload one Submission per Entry Period during each Submission Phase.

Winners will be determined during each Entry Period's Judging Phase by a panel of qualified judges based on the following judging criteria:
-Creativity/Originality (30 points)
-Image Quality of Submission (35 points)
-Fit to Theme (35 points)

There is no entry fee to submit. To learn more about this competition, click here.
