Canon Australia has announced the Canon Light Awards LIVE, an exciting and immersive, real-time creative photography competition. Comprising two-day events in four states, state semi-finals and a national Grand Final.

Canon Light Awards LIVE reinvents the format of previous years’ competitions with a two-day live experience to push photographers’ creativity, skill and technique to the limit. Open to all enthusiasts regardless of the type or brand of camera they use, each round of the live competition will present a unique opportunity for photographers to join like-minded peers, learn from some of Australia’s best image-makers, and turn their ideas into photographs within a tight timeframe.

“Everyone is on a creative journey and the further they get the more they need to be challenged, which is why we created the Canon Light Awards two years ago,” said Jason McLean, Director–Canon Consumer Imaging, Canon Australia. “Canon Light Awards LIVE takes it to the next level by combining professional mentorship with a 24-hour creative challenge to put your skills to the test in a real-time challenge.”

Kicking off in Adelaide from 6-7 May, Canon Light Awards LIVE comprises two-day events in four major Australian cities throughout 2017, where Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne are next on the cards!

At each immersive event, participants will work under one of Australia’s top professional photographers for an inspiring three-hour Masterclass, followed by an exciting 24-hour photography challenge that culminates in a live feedback session with the judges.
The events will cost $79 per person. To register for Adelaide Canon Light Awards LIVE, please visitwww.canon.com.au/lightawards.
