Lensbaby® Announces Pinhole Photo Contest

Best pinhole photos win a Lensbaby gift certificate, Joby tripod, and Red River Paper gift certificate

Portland, OR (PRWEB) March 23, 2010 – In celebration of Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day on April 25, 2010, Lensbaby (www.lensbaby.com) announces today an open call for photographers to submit their best pinhole images, whether created using a Lensbaby Pinhole/Zone plate Optic or any other type of Pinhole camera, into the Lensbaby Pinhole Photo Contest.

With Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day right around the corner, we thought a creative photography contest for all pinhole photography fans was the perfect way to bring attention to this classically imaginative type of photography.

Up to 3 winners will be selected as the best of the best. These winners will receive a prize bundle that includes a Lensbaby gift certificate for $150, a Gorillapod tripod and ball head combo, and a $50 gift certificate from Red River Paper. Popular voting will be used to help decide one of the winners. Acclaimed pinhole photographers Tom Persinger and Craig Barber will pick two additional winning images.

“With Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day right around the corner, we thought a creative photography contest for all pinhole photography fans was the perfect way to bring attention to this classically imaginative type of photography,” said Lensbaby President and Co-Founder Craig Strong. “We can’t wait to see all the artistic pinhole photos.”

Photographers can submit two images for consideration via http://lensbaby.com/pinholecontest. The contest begins today and electronic submissions will be accepted until 6pm, PST, April 9, 2010. Online voting will begin on April 9th and end on April 16th. The winning images will be announced April 23rd.

Submission Guidelines:
Photographers can keep these guidelines in mind as they choose their images:
* Any pinhole photo, whether taken with a Lensbaby Pinhole/Zone plate Optic or not, is eligible.
