In honour of Nikon’s 100th anniversary the theme of the Nikon 100th Anniversary Award is “Celebration”. The theme for the Next Generation Award and The Open Award is “Future”. In total, Nikon is awarding more than 60 prizes, with the contest accepting entries until Friday January 27, 2017. Click here to enter!
