Tuesday, 13 November 2012
Fourth annual competition categories include people, pets, travel, cellphone images

Arlington, Va., Nov. 13, 2012 – The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® today launched its fourth annual digital photo contest in partnership with Eye-Fi, maker of the world’s first wireless memory card. The grand prize winner, to be announced January 11, 2013, at the 2013 International CES®, will receive a Canon EOS Rebel T3i and an Eye-Fi wireless SD memory card. All photo entries will be displayed at the LVH in the PMA@CES exhibits at the 2013 CES, the world’s largest innovation event. A slate of expert judges will select finalists in each category. Winners will be chosen via an online vote that will run from January 8 - 11, 2013.

Submission to the “Best Shots” contest will be accepted until December 16, 2012. Entrants can submit one photo in each of four categories: people, travel, pets and cellphone shots. Contestants can enter photos at CE.org/BestShots.

“Today, we are able to interact with photos in progressively more innovative ways with so many options to share, create and manipulate images,” said Grace Ellis, CEA spokeswoman. “Eye-Fi and CEA want to see what people can do with their ‘Best Shots.’”

Prize packages are as follows:

One Grand Prize:

  • Canon EOS Rebel T3i with Eye-Fi Wireless Memory SD Card

  • Fujifilm FinePix F770EXR with Eye-Fi Wireless Memory SD Card

Five Honorable Mention Prizes:

The explosion of digital camera options available in today’s market has increased the number of images captured. According to CEA research, family, friends, natural scenery and pets are the top subjects photographed. Additionally, as smartphone household penetration grows, consumers are using their cellphones more often to capture spontaneous photos. Not only are they taking more photos, but they are also emailing photos to others and posting to social networks once they are captured.
