Deadline Looming for December X-Rite Photo Contest, Theme Announced

Entering a themed photography contest each monthThe December theme for X-Rite’s Color Perfectionists Unite Photo Contest is Celebrating Family. Photographers and anyone passionate about perfecting color are invited to submit original photos based on the Celebrating Family theme from today through Dec. 15. Voting will take place Dec. 16-31 and the winner will be selected from the top 20 finalists determined by the number of votes for each photo.

Since the summer of 2011, monthly winners in the 2011 Color Perfectionists Unite Photo Contest series have been selected by a top professional photographer specializing in the area of photography related to each monthly theme.

Each monthly winner has also been featured on the X-Rite Photo blog and has received one of X-Rite’s new display solutions – either a ColorMunki Display or an i1Display Pro – and a ColorChecker Passport, providing each winner with the ideal tools to get accurate color from their cameras and displays. The top 20 finalists each month are featured in a monthly gallery at X-Rite Photo on Facebook and the Color Perfectionists Group on Flickr.

“Through the Color Perfectionists Unite photography contest, X-Rite has searched for and found fellow Color Perfectionists from around the world willing to brilliantly show us how much color means to them,” said Mark Rezzonico, vice president X-Rite Photo Marketing. “And with themes that have changed every month bringing us to the final theme just in time for the holidays – Celebrating Family – we are really pleased with the quality of images that have been submitted through the last five months and we’re sure December’s entries will bring us more of the same.”
