World Photo Day, Impact Photo Contest

Description:

In honor of World Photo Day, on August 19th, Drobo, the award-winning provider of storage solutions for businesses, professionals and consumers, is teaming with Photofocus, a premier voice and educator for aspiring and professional photographers, to launch the first annual World Photo Day, ‘Impact’ Photo Contest.

From August 1st to August 15th, any photographer, novice to expert, may submit an impactful photo that “shares their world with the world” embodying the founding theme of the day’s celebration. Each submission will be reviewed by Photofocus Publisher, Rich Harrington; and world renowned photographers, Chamira Young, Michéle Grenier and Kevin Ames, and then two winners will be selected. The grand prize winner will be awarded a Drobo 8D – the fastest Drobo yet, with Thunderbolt™ 3 speed, a Drobo 5N2, a Retrospect Backup Windows or Mac License, two Seagate HDDs, and a Sigma Lens (value up to $1,000). The second prize winner will be awarded a Drobo 5D3 and a Retrospect License. Retrospect Backup software protects every part of the computer environment, from onsite to cloud backup with one single click. Drobo and Retrospect together provide a complete data protection workflow for home or business.

Three entrants per week will be featured on social media by Drobo. The winners of the contest will be announced on Monday, August 19th, which marks the 9th annual World Photo Day (also known as World Photography Day and Photo Day). Now considered the world’s largest celebration of the art and science of photography, the annual celebration was created by Canberra, Australia photographer Korske Ara, and attracts the attention of about 500 million people across the globe.
