Here is the official release for the end of this competition. Did anyone here win anything?

Enthusiast digital SLR photographers have succeeded once again in showcasing, through Canon’s annual EOS Photo5 competition, the incredible talent and creativity that New Zealanders possess. 

Today the six winners as voted by the public were revealed, two of which were New Zealand entrants and four from Australia. 

The winners’ images expose a variety of creative journeys and inspiration from mysterious settings and private moments to colourful displays of action. 

Each year, EOS Photo5 showcases the incredible talent and creativity of enthusiast New Zealand and Australian photographers. The popularity of the contest has grown dramatically, generating 8,811 uploaded images, a 33% increase from 2009.
Rochelle Mora, Brand Manager – Imaging, Canon New Zealand says the challenging nature of Photo5 always brings out the best in the Kiwi photographic community and pushes them to new creative heights. “The passion for excellence and the willingness to share knowledge within the growing community really echoes what the EOS brand is all about.

“The EOS Photo5 competition has surpassed all expectations, both in the sheer number of creative and inspired people that participated, as well as the talent and quality of the works they produced,” says Rochelle. 

The panel of EOS Photo5 judges was comprised of six professional and highly-respected photographers in New Zealand and Australia who chose the finalists. The winner of each category was then chosen through a phase of public voting. 

“There was an enormous volume of images this year, which generated a great deal of discussion. The strong talent made choosing a few favorites quite a difficult task!” says Jackie Ranken, Canon EOS Ambassador and professional photographer and lecturer. “It’s always interesting to see which images the voters will choose and I think this year’s winners did exceptionally well with each of the briefs.”

Participants received a box with four objects (which had to be shot using a particular photographic technique) as well as a fifth ‘sound brief’ – a recording that was open to wide artistic interpretation. This year, there was new a Portfolio category, where the winner was chosen for having excelled in all five briefs.

(Please find more detail regarding the 2010 briefs at the end of this release)

The winner of each brief category receives: an EOS 5D Mark II premium kit (camera body and EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens) and an incredible 3-day creative photography workshop in Queenstown with Canon EOS Masters Jackie Ranken and Mike Langford. The winner of the portfolio category receives the same prize package, plus one of the brand new Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye lenses and a PIXMA Pro 9000 Mark II printer.

This competition is on again this year. Everyone who entered last year should have an email which lets them enter this year guaranteed. You can sign up for the new packs now. 

Looking forward to this again this year. But might be using it as a learning process with a new camera if Nikon plays ball on the 24th of August and gives me something to be happy about.
