IVRPA Panoramic Photography Contest 2007

In conjunction with the 2007 International VR Photography Conference in Berkeley, the IVRPA announces its first annual Panoramic Photography Contest!

Both print and interactive panoramas are encouraged, and there are multiple categories available for submission: Landscapes, Cityscapes, Famous places and landmarks, People and events, Architecture and interiors, "Extreme" subjects and locations, Commissioned works, & Interactive Environments.

Entries will be made online, and judged by a panel of respected members of the VR community and by photography professionals in related fields. The Contest will be taking submissions soon, and once announced will be open for submission for about a month. There will be prizes for First Place in each category, and Honorable Mentions. There will also be Best of Show prizes, a People's Choice award, and a special prize for Innovation.

The winning entries and awards will be announced June 17, 2007 at the Keynote Banquet during the International VR Photography Conference in Berkeley.

Entry is open to all IVRPA members; for those outside the IVRPA community, entry can be made for as little as $25 (an Associate membership to the IVRPA).

I'll let everyone know when the Contest is open for entries -- until then, start blowing the dust off your negatives (digital or otherwise ;) and get ready to give us your best shot!

Interested people are free to contact me directly off-list, or via the contact form at the Contest Web site.

Good luck!, and
