2014/2015 Nikon Photo Contest for Photographers (worldwide)

Submission Deadline: December 15 2014

Theme “HOME”

Home. It’s a place. It’s a feeling. It’s where and how you live. It’s what you value, no matter where you are. We at Nikon recognize that home is at the heart of everything. This year’s contest asks you to show us what home means to you.

The Nikon Photo Contest International has been held by Nikon Corporation since 1969 to provide an opportunity for photographers around the world to communicate and to enrich image-making culture for professionals and amateurs alike.
The Nikon Photo Contest nurtures an aspirational community that supports photographers and filmmakers who wish to share important stories and influence the way people think through images.

This year for the first time, all categories in photography and video will accept entries from any digital device, including smartphones. The video category will broaden its accepted length of six to 180 seconds, and will have an independent set of judges.
