Nikon is pleased to announce that the 39th edition of the Nikon Photo Contest is accepting entries until 13 February 2023 at 6 am CET.

The theme of the photo competition is ‘Beloved’. Nikon will be looking for images that express individual priorities from various perspectives in both the ‘Single Photo’ and ‘Photo Story’ categories.  

The theme of the film competition is ‘Next Steps’ - entries to the ‘Short Film and ‘Super Short Film’ categories should express the future growth and the evolution of the world.

Sarah Leen, the first female Director of Photography for National Geographic magazine and National Geographic Partners will lead this year’s esteemed panel of judges. In 2020, Sarah established Visual Thinking Collective, a community of female editors, teachers and curators that specialise in creating and managing visually driven projects. 

On her appointment as lead judge, Sarah comments: "My hope for the Nikon Photo Contest is to gather stories that represent our world today. We are just getting used to a new way of life after three years of isolation and fear from the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, we have new opportunities and new chances. So think about your world, think about what you’ve seen change and grow and are now there as new opportunities. I’m really looking forward to seeing work that comes from all over the world. We have this opportunity with this contest to show where we are today and tell our stories, tell your personal stories."

First held in 1969, the Nikon Photo Contest is currently the world's largest international photo competition. It aims to enrich imaging culture by providing an opportunity for professional and amateur photographers around the world to express themselves and engage with one another. In the previous contest, 26,000 participants from 150 countries and regions across the world submitted over 65,000 photographs.

The Contest is open to all professional and amateur photographers, regardless of age, gender, or nationality. To find further details on the Contest categories and information on how to enter visit the Nikon Photo Contest website. Winners are expected to be announced in July 2023.
