  • Canon and the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Photo Challenge

    LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., September 6, 2006 - Canon and the Pro Football Hall of Fame are once again giving football and photography fans the opportunity to capture the fun, passion and excitement of youth football by entering their best football photos, everything from a playful catch in the backyard to any youth, school, or organized football games in the "Why Do You Love Football" Photo Challenge.

    The nation-wide amateur photo contest features two entry categories "Action" and "Feature." The "Action" category focuses on any image that captures football action during game play, while the "Feature" category comprises any football imagery outside of game action on the field.

    A judging panel consisting of top photographers Peter Read Miller, Sports Illustrated; Mark Duncan, Associated Press; Craig Melvin, US PRESSWIRE; John Reid III, Cleveland Browns team photographer; Tony Tomsic, freelance photographer and Archie Manning, former NFL quarterback; will determine the group of 14 finalists. The voting will then be turned over to the fans who will crown the first place winner in both the "Action" and "Feature" categories, along with the Grand Prize winner in early January.

    The Grand Prize winner will be awarded a trip for four to attend Super Bowl XLI in South Florida and will earn a once in a lifetime opportunity to have his or her photo displayed in The Pro Football Hall of Fame, in Canton, Ohio. Additionally, the winner will receive a trip for four to the 2007 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Celebration in August 2007.

    Parents, family members and friends are encouraged to submit as many as 10 images by visiting www.usa.canon.com/nfl and following the online instructions and official rules. The contest ends on November 27, 2006.
