APOY 2016 Photography Competition

APOY Photography contest imageWidth of a Circle (creative wideangle) is the subject for the second round of APOY 2016. Choosing the right lens for your scene is perhaps one of the most crucial factors in producing a successful image. The appropriate focal length can serve to obscure as much as it can reveal. For example, a telephoto lens can pull the viewer’s attention in to the subject by removing any extraneous details that may serve to distract the eye.

Prizes: The Sigma dp1 Quattro incorporates the Foveon X3 direct image sensor, which is similar to traditional colour film in that its multiple layers capture all the information that visible light transmits.

Eligibility: UK Only

The prizes

Prizes are awarded to the first-placed entrants for each round. This year we have great Sigma lenses, cameras and accessories on offer, worth a total each month of around £1,000. We also have a top prize of Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art (£799.99), Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art (£849.99) and Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro (£649.99) lenses worth more than £2,000. That’s a grand total of over £10,000 for APOY 2016 in association with Sigma.
