The Sports Workshop scholarship joins a growing list of prizes that include digital cameras, equipment cases, digital media, radio remote triggers and gift certificates.
Sponsors for the annual Sports Shooter Contest are: Nikon, Roberts Distributors, LPA Designs, Canon, Penn Camera, Lowepro, Fujifilm, Samy's Camera and Rich Clarkson & Associates LLC.
This year's contest will feature five categories:
1) Best Action Photo
2) No Pro, No College
3) Best No Ball
4) Student Portfolio
5) Photo of the Year
The deadline will be midnight pacific time, Super Bowl Sunday. Next year's Super Bowl will be held on Feb.3, 2002.
Entries to the Sports Shooter Contest must be made digitally and submitted via e-mail. Details on file size will be outlined in a the December issue of the newsletter. The information will also be on the Sports Shooter Archives (hosted by manginphotography.com) and posted on the Sports Shooter Forum (hosted by robgalbraith.com).
The "Best Action Photo" is any image depicting game action on within the arena or stadium holding the event.
"No Pro, No College" are images from a sporting event that does not involve a professional or major college team. This could be high school, junior college or even little league events. The images can be action or feature.
"Best No Ball" is a feature category, but can be any image that does not have a ball (or puck) in it. This includes jubilation and dejection images as well as portraits.
Our "Student Portfolio" category was introduced in the last contest and was extremely popular. Photographers who are full-time students or are students currently serving an internship are eligible to enter this category. Students should submit up to 5 images and they will be judged on technical skill, diversity and impact.
"The Photo of the Year" entries will be gathered from the winners of the other categories and will receive the top prize from Sports Shooter.
All entries must have been taken during 2001.
