Billed as the Super Bowl of Photography, the PhotoPro Expo takes place on Super Bowl Weekend, Feb. 2-5 at the Marriott River Center in Covington, Ky., just across the river from Cincinnati. As part of the educational weekend, which features an all-star lineup of speakers, there’s also a Print Competition and Exhibition.
The Print Competition features more than $5,000 in awards and prizes, including the coveted LexJet Sunset Award. The winner of the LexJet Sunset Award and the handsome trophy will also receive a $200 gift certificate toward the purchase of any of the fine art and photo papers and canvases in LexJet’s Sunset portfolio of inkjet media for professional photographic and fine art printing.
To qualify for the LexJet Sunset Award, the entries must be printed on any LexJet photo or fine art paper and meet PhotoPro Expo’s print competition submission requirements.
All registrations must be completed at printcompetition.com before shipping or hand delivering your entries. Shipped cases must be received by Jan. 30 and hand-delivered submissions by 3 p.m., Feb. 1. Click here for all the Print Competition details and rules.
Divisions include Portrait, Wedding, Gallery, Digital Artistry, Rising Star, Albums and Specialists. The winner of each Category within those Divisions – the Portrait Division, for instance, includes General, Children, Senior, Fashion and Best Categories – will be chosen by judges during the Expo and recognized at the awards ceremony. In addition, Top Honors will be given to the PhotoPro Network Photographer of the Year (plus a $200 cash prize), Best of Show ($150 cash prize), People’s Choice Award ($100 cash prize), Best Black & White Award ($100 cash prize) and PhotoPro Network TOP 10 Awards ($50 gift certificates).
