"For many years, we have talked about photographers who achieve great things in low light. But with this brief, we are asking for an active use of light, not just as something to light up a scene or a subject but to create a feeling, a mood, drama, action, a different perspective, a challenging view, or to highlight the hidden – wherever the photographer wants to go with it.
"For Canon, the 'red line' may be the common thread that binds together an amazing range of cameras, lenses and printers, but for our photographers, it represents belonging to a creative community. Through this competition we will be able to celebrate the achievements of thousands across EMEA.
"Imagination will be key to achieving standout and distinctive imagery," Susie concludes, "and I'm looking forward to seeing the unique perspectives that we know our photographers will bring to the competition."
