Citing technical problems, Canon has extended the deadline for the 2009 Canon photo5 competition to 6am ADST Thursday, 5 November.
The competition originally closed Sunday but was extended after large numbers of entrants contacted Canon with reports of problems uploading their images to the competition, which challenges registered amateur photographers to submit photographs according to any of four ‘briefs‘. Each photograph must include an object sent in a box back in September.
This year, the briefs included ‘splat’, close-up, bokeh, and portraiture. A fifth brief, ‘practically black’, was available to photographers who did not register in time to receive – an extra category open even to those that did not receive the original box.
In an earlier AMW competition, nine photographers — along with avid photographer and former AMW editor Chris Oaten — were given boxes and tasked with getting as creative as they could. The winners’ submitted pictures can be seen here, and we look forward to seeing their photo5 entries as well.
Canon publishes all entries for public browsing here.
Good luck to everyone who entered!
