Canon South Africa’s highly anticipated Canon SA Expo will be held from Friday, 30 November to Sunday, 2 December 2012 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, Gauteng.
The expo will be open from 10:00am to 18:00pm daily and entrance will be free.
After a highly successful show in 2011 where an excess of 13 500 visitors attended over the three days, Canon SA has taken it upon themselves to make this year’s show bigger and better.
The expo will again showcase Canon’s wide range of consumer and selected business solutions.
Visitors to this exclusively Canon Expo will also be the first to experience some of Canon’s latest technology.
The expo will include more guest speaker sessions than previously and two sessions are scheduled to run throughout the day.
Aspiring photographers are invited to once again participate in the Canon Photo Competition and can enter one or all four themed categories, designed to encourage creative interpretation.
The themes are: Reflections; Into the Great Wide Open; Adrenaline and Magic Colours.
“Aside from the unexpected high attendance at last year’s expo, we were also amazed at the quality of entries submitted for the photographic competition,” says Michelle Janse van Vuuren, Marketing Manager at Canon SA.
“We will use a similar format to last year but intend on making the themes even more interesting.”
Selected entries will be exhibited online on Canon SA’s Expo website (www.csaexpo.co.za) as well as on the Expo’s Facebook site (search Canon SA Expo on Facebook).
One winner per category will be selected by a panel of judges and will be announced on 15 January 2013. They will each win an EOS5D Mark III including an EF40 MM F2.8 STM lens.
The top 10 entries in each category will also be exhibited in the gallery at the Canon Expo where visitors will be able to vote for their favourite entries.
Entries must be submitted in electronic JPEG format, not exceeding 2Megs, to the four email addresses correlating to the various themes.
