17th August 2009

GORINCHEM, the Netherlands – Prestigio is proud to announce the return of its International Photographic Award. The contest is open to amateur and professional photographs from all backgrounds, ages and levels of experience, and will be held from September 15th until November 30th 2009. To be eligible, all pictures must illustrate one of Prestigio’s brand values: Elegance, Performance or Inspiration. Prestigio has made it a tradition since 2004 to hold several artistic competitions each year aimed at promoting the brand and artists at all levels from around the world. The last International Photographic contest held by Prestigio had more than 500 entries submitted by contestants from 35 countries worldwide. ”In the past years, we received such a positive reaction from the public”, explained Viktoria Kletskova, Online Marketing Coordinator at Prestigio. ”We were impressed by the quality and creativity of the pictures people sent us, and by the overall popularity and scale of these contests globally.” From the 15th of September until the 30th of November, amateurs and professionals with any photographic genre can submit their pictures and share their work with the world. Very few rules are applicable, the main one being that each picture have to illustrate and express one of the following concept: Elegance, Performance and/or Inspiration. ”We choose these categories because we recently rebranded Prestigio and clarified what the brand stands for,” clarified Catherine Lazure-Guinard, Communications Manager at Prestigio. ”Elegance, Performance and Inspiration are the values we are committed to, and we would like to explore what these concepts mean for the public. Each value is relatively broad and can be expressed in several ways, but we wanted to give a lot of freedom to photographers.” How would you define ‘Elegance’? ∼ What is the ultimate or subtile representation of ‘Performance’? ∼ How can ‘Inspiration’ be capture in a photo?
