TOKYO - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that entries for the Nikon Photo Contest 2014-2015 will be accepted between September 15 and December 15, 2014. Nikon Photo Contest (NPC) is one of the world's most prestigious international photo contests.
1. In all categories, Nikon will now accept entries from any digital device, including smartphones. Previously only entries created on digital cameras were eligible.
2. There are now two unrestricted Video categories, up to 180 seconds in length. Previously only Nikon 1 cameras were eligible for the "Motion Snapshot" category, and only short videos (45 seconds) made using a digital camera were eligible for the "Photographic Video" category.
