Fancy street photography? Well, here’s your chance to share your photography skills with the world through Streets of Chrome, a photo contest being held by Chrome Industries, makers of bombproof bags, footwear and apparel, to find the world’s next great street photographer in conjunction with the drop of their new camera bag, the Niko Camera Backpack. The contest is open for street photographers worldwide, including Canada.
The Streets of Chrome photo contest, which runs January 22–February 14, 2013, will be judged by the legendary street photographers Rickey Powell, Tod Seelie and Ken Goto.
Finalists will be chosen by Chrome’s panel of expert judges, and the winner will be determined by open voting on www.streetsofchrome.com February 7th-14th. Photo submissions will be judged based on creativity, originality, and ability to capture the essence of the streets.
Designed for street photographers and action videographers who need a covert utility bag, the Niko Camera Pack features a weatherproof 1,000-denier-nylon shell, a military-grade tarpaulin liner, a fully customizable interior for lenses and flashes, multiple pockets for cable and gear storage, and fast, easy swing-around access. Stash your phone, fuel, and an extra layer in the top-loader and securely slide up to a 15” laptop in the padded sleeve.
The winner will take away a Fujifilm X-Pro1 compact-system camera, a Fujifilm X-Pro1 35mm F/1.4 lens, and a Chrome Niko Camera Backpack (total value: $2,000+).
